PBW#2 Marguerite's Trial Ballet Class

It was a busy weekend yet again. Saturday morning was Marguerite's trial ballet class. She loved it, but she still needs to learn how to behave in a structured class. We'll give it another go this weekend and decide if we should start now or wait a little bit longer. She's only 3 after all, so there's no rush.  Either way, I'm getting her proper leotards and pointe shoes, hehe. That is, if my mom doesn't beat me to it. We also got to see the children of friends of ours, who turned out to be studying ballet there too. That was a nice surprise. After that, we went with Husband while he hunted up car-related thingies, then we headed for church for the worship team practice (he was the guitarist on Sunday) and to let Marguerite do tambourine dance with the church "tambouriners" as they practiced. Chip followed since she had to practice her special song number with Lyka (they're singing "Desert Song" next Sunday). Good times. It's quite fun spending time in church outside of the regular services. Sunday started with the usual Sunday Service. For the afternoon fellowship activity, Mark and I left Marguerite at the church (I made that sound like Jesus at the temple, hehe). The kids had a movie afternoon while our age group went to visit the newest member of our congregation, one-week-old Euan Flores, in his home. Now, I leave you with pictures from M's first ballet class.

Looks like M was having so much fun! I love that she was the only one with dark dance-wear :) Can't she just continue using those? hehe

Thanks to everyone who commented. :)

@moonchild: She does and definitely wants to go back.:)

@Vera: I guess she can although her outfit was more jazzy than ballet. :)

@Chip: Not the Sunday right before, I don't think. I didn't hear her, but we all know how wide her range is, lol.

@Silvergirl: I don't think she minded that she stood out in her outfit, which I must say, I love (that she didn't get self-conscious). :)

@Sharkbytes: She certainly seems happy in the arts. I hope she'll also display enthusiasm in learning other things. :)

@Russ: They all looked so cute. I was "aww-ing" the entire time I was there, lol.

@Sassy Mom: She was over-excited the first time (screaming and jumping instead of paying attention, lol) so I hope for next time that the fun is still there for her, but that she'll be a little more mellow. :D

@reyapot and caloy: Thanks for visiting. I'll pop on over to your blogs now. :)
