dance dance dance

I am one proud mom!  

Layla tried a dance class tonight and loved it.  She didn't want to go AT ALL.  She doesn't want to do anything extra curricular because I think she gets so nervous that she talks herself out of everything.  Good thing I made her go.  She loved it and asked to go back.  

Hallelujah can you hear the angels singing?  

We've been trying to talk her into piano lessons, soccer, softball and/or gymnastics.   I think she was so nervous starting a new school.  I know that was a huge thing for her and it's so different and new.  I don't think she was ready to try more new things, but she's good now!  I hope she will play softball too, but I'm not gonna push her too hard.  Now, she can't wait to go shopping for all the dance attire she will need!

The class was 1.5 hours long.  I wasn't able to watch her, so I was just sitting there in the waiting area hoping she'd love it.  I was worried she was miserable and would be ready to run from the building after it was over.  The last 5 minutes of class we got to watch what they learned for the day.  She was grinning from ear to ear and I knew she loved it.  She'll do 30 minutes of each, Ballet, Tap and Jazz.  When we got home she was showing me all the things she learned and she was even using a few big 'dance' words.  

I know this is one of the many things she'll try in her life.  I'm so happy to see her growing and learning and turning into a little lady!
