Addy: Strike a pose

Today was picture day at Addy's dance class and also a chance for us to make sure we have all the costume pieces together in preparation for the recital coming up in June. Addy has really loved her tap/ballet class despite not previously knowing any of the girls in her class this year. Unfortunately preschool conflicted with all the morning classes, so she is in an afternoon class this year..at 4:15pm. So I drag the whole crew each week to her class....which is not ideal, but worth it because she enjoys it so much. I have to keep reminding her to pay attention to what is going on...she gets so absorbed with watching herself in the mirror. But, man, she did look really cute today. Addy is the kid in the family who always lets me take her picture. She'll strike a pose on cue. I think I like that because I'll get a great photo like this and wonder why I even order the dance pictures from the studio:

Oh, by the way, this is my 100th post on my blog. Congrats to me. I think I'll celebrate with a bowl of ice cream while watching The Biggest Loser. :-)

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
