We finished up the spring session and despite realizing that she wasn't a natural born ballerina, Lyla did have a blast. She loved her teacher and the princess sticker she got after every class, and we even made some great new friends. I was proud of her for sticking it out through the entire session without ever really complaining.
It may have been short lived, but I loved every minute of our little ballet stint. The tutus and the hair buns and the constant fancy leaping across our house were kind of a dream come true. But let's be honest, it's not like I had any graceful genes to pass on, so I kind of knew the ballet career wouldn't go that far. I'm thinking we'll need to go full contact to have any real success. ;)
Here's some pics of our little ballet star!

|Ready for her first class. :)|
|Picture day! She even got to wear a touch of makeup, and now both girls are obsessed with lipgloss. :)|
|Part of her class, before pictures.|
|The whole crew going in for their pictures. It just doesn't get any cuter!|
|Last ballet class! (We ripped through at least 3 pairs of tights and I refused to buy more at this point. :)|
|Got her pictures back! So many heart eyes.|
|She was so proud of herself! And that's her very first bouquet of flowers. Pink roses, her favorite. :)|
