First Dance Recital

Sophie passed a big "little girl" milestone recently, with her first dance recital.  Miss Julie's little dancers could wear whatever made them feel most beautiful for this Christmas performance; Sophie wore a Santa top and a homemade red and green tutu.  I predicted she would be too shy to actually perform on stage in front of the several hundred spectators, but I was wrong... she LOVED it!  Like a good mommy, I muscled up to the front and sat on the floor with camera in hand.  At one point, my little girl and I made eye contact, and I think we both felt and saw true joy.  Silly, I know, but I was so proud!  Now, many more recitals to come...
