The Big Ballet Recital

Today was finally the day that my little girl was able to show off her ballet moves to not only her family but an entire theater full of individuals. Whenever we first got to the Capital Arts theater in Bowling Green, I started to get very worried because (1) it was a huge clustered mess, (2) it was raining cats and dogs, (3) it was extremely hot in the area where Charli and her classmates were having to wait because the air conditioner was broken (4) the lovely scatter brained artsy mind of a Studio director we have did not tell us that two Mommas needed to volunteer to be a chaperon for our girls. HA! That was SO not going to be this Momma! I was ready to sit back and watch my girl dance, so that is exactly what I did.

So off to my seat I went where I was instantly amazed by the young dancers. Then Charli Beth's came on the stage, as soon I as she walked out there holding the hand of the other little ones, I broke out into huge crocodile tears. No joke. I had to pull myself together just so that I would be able to watch her! {Honestly I am tearing up right now just thinking about it} She did so good, and was only side tracked for about 5 seconds as she started to stare off into the crowd. All of the little girls did wonderful though, watch their teacher and did their moves just as they were suppose to. I so wish I would of been rebel and held my camera up to video her =) Next year, I am going to, you better count on that! I tried to get a perfect picture of her after wards but she just would not stay still, she was really wanting to pose and twril around in front of everyone outside. I did get a few cute ones of her though!

On the stage with everyone for their final bow

She was extremely proud of herself!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
