Animal Crackers in my Soup!

Addy had her end-of-year dance recital at the beginning of June. Her class runs a full school year, and she has loved her teacher, Ms. Nancy and her tap/ballet class this year. We lucked out with a small class of only 6 girls, which made it lots of fun each week. For the recital the class did a tap dance to the completely adorable song, "Animal Crackers" by Shirley Temple in the movie 'Curly Top'. I loved how age appropriate the song and costumes were this year...sometimes I feel like they 'dress up' these girls to look and act much older, but these sweet costumes and bobby socks were so sweet for our little 4 year old. The 'Animal Cracker' girls got lots of oohs and ahhs. Addy did great ... I never really know how well she knows it until she is on stage because she resists practicing with me.....and I am freakin' awesome at this dance by the way.
She was so excited to have her very own flowers for the kitchen counter!

Aunt Erin endured the long day with me for the dress rehearsal and was so nice to have her company and help! She flew up to help me travel to North Carolina the day after the recital and she was such a huge help (more on our trip soon). Thanks Erin!

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 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?

More about me here.
