I thought today was our youngest daughter’s last ballet lesson here, but it turns out there is one more in April. Just three days before we pack up the truck and head north. There will be more lessons and recitals, but there will be only one beginning. When she started a year and a half ago she walked in with a reserved enthusiasm. She’ll be leaving next month brimming with confidence and pride.
With that on my mind, I couldn’t resist capturing the moment as she got ready this morning. Even going so far as to actually use my new camera instead of my cellphone.
Her hair took forever to comb and wrangle into a ballerina bun. Seriously, this girl seems to be going for the dreadlock look every single week. I definitely had to get that on film.
I can’t believe it’s been a year since this last photo was taken. From her very first recital.
Time moves on, but the memories will always remain.
