The prettiest ballerina


So, today was the day. Jordan's first ballet class. Technically, it was a 'trial' class, but I already knew she'd love it. She was SO excited this morning. We made a fairly feeble attempt to do school before her class, but it was hard for her to concentrate! After class, her instructor came out and said that she did really well and picked everything up really easily. So, off we went to the dancewear store to buy pink tights and ballet shoes! Jordan was adorable trying on her shoes...and trying out her new 'moves'! Once we had the tights and shoes picked out, the lady asked if we had a ballet bag. As you can see, Jordan picked one out...because, of course, she NEEDED it!!! I spent more on her tights, shoes and bag than we are spending on a month's worth of ballet classes...there's just something wrong with that! Welcome to the world of extracurricular activities, right?
Oh...P.S...I completely forgot to add this: during Jordan's class, I was doing Jake's reading lesson with him when a lady approached me and said she's used the same curriculum with all of her kids and she homeschools as well. She has 5 kids and has homeschooled from the beginning, so it was fun to visit with her and 'pick her brain'! I just love how God is sprinkling homeschool resources and contacts into our lives - even in the places I don't expect! He's graciously blessed us with so many affirmations that we made the right choice for our family.

She is the cutest little ballerina. Way to go Jordan! Seeing her really makes me wish I had a little girl, none of my boys would ever let me dress them up as a ballerina. LoL
