I was so busy showing you how to make a Mother’s Day card yesterday that I forgot to tell you how the dance recital went. In a word………………..AWESOME!! My day on Saturday started out at 5:00 am when my mom woke me up. I took a bath, ate breakfast, and got ready for the day. I was at the recital venue at 7:45 am where we did hair and make-up and got ready for our first show. We had ballet barre to warm up between 9:00 and 9:30 am and then it was time for our 10:00 am show. I was in six dances in Show #1 and I led three dances for the younger girls (I am a teacher’s assistant in those classes). The show was over at 12:00 pm and then we ate lunch, prepared our costumes for the second show, touched up our hair and make-up, and had another ballet barre warm up from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. Show #2 started at 2:30 pm. I was in nine dances in Show #2 and we finished at 4:15 pm. It was a long day, but it was exactly why we’ve all been working so hard all year. Everyone was really happy and relieved that it was over! I got home after 5:00 pm. I am so glad that I have the next two weeks off before summer dance classes begin. I need a break! Take a look at all the flowers and stuff I got from my family after the recital!
