First day of Ballet class

About a month ago I asked Ash if she wanted to do gymnastics again, or something else. She decided she wanted to do ballet. When we lived in Midvale she took 2 ballet/tap classes...Personally, I didn't like her doing tap as much, so I looked around for nearby studios that would ONLY teach ballet. I found one in's about 10 min from my house. It's a cute little studio with a large picture window so the parents can sit and watch the class. Thankfully, Preston was being really good so we stayed and watched the whole class. There was 8 or 9 kids in her class and her teacher was awesome!!!

Ash--no skirt on, hair in a bun

After class--the teacher (I think her name is Sherrie) gave each of the girls a sticker and told them each something positive that they did in class!
Awesome positive reinforcement!!!

Snuck a pic of the teacher. ;-)
Sept 1, Ash is going to be starting piano lessons as well--my sis-in-law Jana is going to be teaching her! :-)

Loved the ballet pictures! Will you be getting a piano for Ash - or a keyboard - for her to practice? Love you.

Yes...We'll probably get her one for her birthday...just a little keyboard
