Tippy Toes!

First day of Dance Class for Lucy today!
Well, its a "Pre Dance" Dance Class but it went so well that Lucy has decided that she's going to take the "rock and roll" class next door to her studio. (It was an advanced jazz class.)

Last night, while making a list of everything I'd need for the morning my questions included the following:

1. Why does this class start at 8:30am? Who hates the mothers of 4 and 5 year olds so much?
2. Will Lucy actually follow her teacher's instructions or teach her own dance to the other students and hijack the class much like her mother did many many moons ago?

I could insert an anecdote about myself taking a dance class involving me creating my own routine and calling the rest of the class over to where I was rather than follow my teacher but that would just take too long and this post is about Lucy!

Thankfully-for me, but not for you, my readers-the class was without incident. I didn't get a lot of pictures because I didn't think they'd want Ella running around yelling or Nathan running and sliding on his knees on the very polished dance floor. So while the kids played on the playground outside, I'd duck in and peek every once in awhile. And let me tell you: She was cute. Like, next time I get mad at her and I can't calm down by counting her freckles, I'm going to make her put on her leotard and tights and show me her new dance steps.

Let's get to the pictures!

What a beautiful dancer, my sweet Lucy Goose.


  1. She looks just like a little doll. So beautiful. Now I'm curious about your hijacking dance class story:) That sounds hilarious!

  2. Why why why do you constantly insist on making me tear up at work!? Those pictrues are so beautiful, as is my neice. Wow.

  3. Love that she is in dance. These pictures are to die for!

  4. Thanks for indulging me with the shoe pic and if I could I would set itas my wallpaper but then the men in my house would wonder if I had gone insane... LOVED IT!!!

    Unfortunately, I would be the dancer girl with no skirt.

    Loved the Lucy Dancing story...

  5. The giant bows on those tap shoes just about makes my life. Wonderful!

  6. Love it!
    Love it!
    Love it!!

    This reminds me of when Alexis had her first day of ballet. So fun to watch our little girls be little girls.

    Love her!!


  7. So so so beautiful!! I can't get over how pecious these are! That face! Those shoes! Even the bow in her hair. I'm glad she indulges you in letting youtake her picture! WE reap the benefits!!!

  8. ok seriously ...she is adorable!!! Reminder me of this when she is acting like a squirrel in sunday school!! Remember she is my future Daughter in law...!!! Ben should be so lucky!

  9. The skirt makes me wish my daughter wasn't such a tomboy. Sigh.

  10. That's one fancy studio- where is this at?

  11. OK sometimes I come back to this blog in particular...sigh...cause she's just so sweet and I love her so very much
