Another one of my darling daughters has decided to try her hand, or foot as it were, at dance. Peanut, our third born, has forsaken soccer and gymnastics in favor of ballet. Not that I mind. It's just one of those things. Ya know?
Peanut has been blessed with legs that go all the way up to her neck and long, graceful arms. Her body type is practically perfect for ballet. However, I don't think she is ready for the seriousness of most ballet studios so we are going with the Y for now. If she loves it, I want her to continue loving it and not be pushed to do more than she wants to by a demanding instructor. We have gone that route and won't go back. Ever.
So for now, she is plie-ing and passe-ing with a smile on her face even if there is a little less money in our bank account. ;-)
