This fall the twins tried out a ballet class.
This picture was taken on the first day. The most exciting day. That day full of wonder and anticipation, believing they were about to transform into delicate and agile ballerinas.
Missy K maintained more interest than Missy L over the course of the next four weeks, but eventually they both came to the conclusion that learning the basics of ballet was not as exciting as it looks in the Barbie movies. That’s OK with me. I’m not set on them dancing, I just wanted to open their horizons. Next month they have swimming lessons, and sometime in the future perhaps I’ll sign them up for soccer. It’s not so much about ballet, or dance as learning something knew. Even if you’re only four years old.
