Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Dance Fever!

La Nina's big dance recital was yesterday and she did a great job on all of her dances.   While I'd like to say, this rounds out her dance season, this was just the beginning of the end.  We have a week off, then she has two more shows the weekend of June 21 plus Maggie has a show. Here's a run down of our day by the number:  

Number of:  

Bags packed:  5
Dances performed: 4
Shows she danced in:  2
Costume changes:   4
Pairs of tights:  8 in 2 colors
Pairs of tights destroyed: 3
Shoes:  3
Hair pieces changed:  4
Hair style changes:  2
Hot rollers used backstage:  8
Hours spent backstage:  6
Complaints about waiting:  0
Minutes spent on stage:  15
Trips to the bathroom:  6
Lipgloss touch ups:  7
Bobby pins used: 10
Hours I spent last night:  10

The thing that makes it all worthwhile is after I loaded a very tired La Nina into the van, she started singing one of the songs she danced to and said, "Mom, today was fun." After a little bit of rest, she was dancing around the house again and asking about her next shows.  The sinking feeling in my stomach tells me she's going to be dancing for a few more years.
