Little Ballerinas

It's time for ballerinas and tutus once again!
The girls are taking the class together this time and couldn't be happier about it.

Avery couldn't take a serious picture. She spent the entire photo shoot trying to pull Sophie down to the ground with her. Do you love the incongruity between the pretty clothes and the scraped up nose on Avery? She's a tomboy in a tutu.

This is Avery's first dance class but Sophie's second. Avery couldn't wait to be old enough to dance like Sophie did last year.

Here they all are on their first day. Is that Sophie picking her nose? Why yes, I think it is. (sigh) Oh well, they had a blast and Avery is spending less and less time sprawled out on the floor goofing off each time, so mommy's happy.

They are certainly the best dressed girls in the class, my goodness! I'm so glad they love to dance, though. The genes are true. :^)

Oh my goodness, those two girls in tutus are the sweeeeetest!

I have to tell you that Avery has a matching nose scrape at the moment with a forehead purple bump to go along with it. She falls off couches and ran into mom's piano last week with nothing to show for it. Then, a small fall down one step leaves these gashes. Anyway, the other comment I have is that Tate picked his nose the entire first day of gymnastics. He had a hard time balancing on the little balance beam because he wouldn't extend his arm since that hand was occupied up the darn nose! Last week another mother even commented how much he was improving and hadn't picked his nose yet =)

Toddler dance classes are seriously wonderful!
