Monday, May 23rd: Doodlebug's Recital

My friend Paula invited me to her daughter's dance recital. Doodlebug is four five, and this was her first year taking lessons. I had forgotten how much fun it is to watch the little ones  perform.

Several times a young dancer left the stage in the opposite direction from the group, and had to be "corrected" with shouts, waves, and/or physically dragged back across stage by the other girls. There was the obligatory one girl twirls in the wrong direction, knocking over another dancer. And of course the "discrete" waves to parents in the middle of the performance. All in all, everyone did a wonderfully perfect job, and I hope that all the families were proud of their prima donans. (Although Doodlebug really was the best one there!)

No! I refuse to let her grow up. Make her stay little as long as possible. LOL

Sorry, Doodlebug. For 5 years old, you're still very cute and talented.
