She's been waiting for almost year.
Last fall Lupine heard about ballet from a friend who was taking a class. Dresses? Dancing? Fancy shoes? My girl was obsessed. She wanted to take a class – right away. We decided to wait a year. (To me even three and a half seems young for taking a class. I wanted to make sure she really wanted to dance before she hurried off into anything.)
But she didn't stop talking about it. She even made up a song that she sang with gusto, called "I Want to Dance Ballet." A year later the passion hasn't faded a bit.
Yesterday it was finally time.
Amidst a group of strangers plus a couple of friends, Lupine finally got to dance ballet. (And tonight? She's already thinking about next Tuesday.)
