Bella's first semester of ballet ended today. To honor their hard work + commitment, the instructor invited parents and siblings in for a class performance. How sweet a moment.
Her first official [be it quite casual] performance. The small class of ballerina's were lavished on with big proud smiles, much camera flashing, and applause. A small but mighty supportive audience.
And per the Grand Dubs ever thoughtful suggestion, Bella even received a small bouquet of roses*. Her very first bouquet of flowers. She left the performance floating with excitement, and ready for next semester--which starts without a break--this coming week.
*thank goodness we remembered late last night, per Bella's bedtime conversation and excitement, that she was expecting a bouquet of flowers. And further, thanks to the Dave for running out at the very end of the day and finding a few appropriately pink roses.
