Recital '08 was great fun. It lasted ALOT longer than I thought it was and we wound up missing a wedding that I feel SOOOO bad about missing...but it was a special day for Lana Lou and I am glad she enjoyed her day. My parents bought her flowers and she obsessed over them. She didn't want them left alone and even took them to eat and to a movie later that night. They are now in a glass that she waters 3 times a day...because you know, carnations need that much water!
Anyways, she was so cute up there dancing and twirling. I was very glad that my daughter was not one of the girls in the "Gold digger" act. Good grief. There where several uncomfortable acts that Stacy looked at me and said, "Uh, that will never be our daughter."
I think we will stick with Shirley Temple and Little Mermaid Songs, thank you!
Perfomance 1 was Tap to Animal Crackers (Shirley Temple)
As you can see she has no problem with her facial expressions!
And #2 was ballet to a song from Little Mermaid (Part of that world)
This is my parents and Lana after the recital with the flowers that she will keep forever!
I'm a little sad that it's over. It has definetly been fun to watch her learn and grow in this. I hope she learns to be more graceful than I am!
