Recital week

Last week was crazy busy!
Vivi had her birthday, and we actually still have the birthday banner and balloons around since she wants her birthday to last as long as possible. lol
We had a nice lunch out and she had time to play with her new presents.

The girls also had rehearsal last week.
It was scary walking into the auditorium with all the people, lights, and super-loud music.
But then they had the Kinderdancers up first (3 and 4 year olds) and they were so cute and funny that it calmed the girls down and they had good rehearsals.
We stayed after their part was done to watch some of the other classes rehearse as well.

Then the girls had two dance performances last weekend. 
They were both in just one dance per night so that it made it much simpler for us compared to the kids in multiple dances and costumes....of which, there were surprisingly a lot.

My hands were so sweaty though, throughout the whole show.
Worried how the girls would do and who exactly was watching them at each point, and if they were hot because the band room where they had to wait was not air conditioned.
I am so not a "Dance Mom." lol

The show was quite entertaining though and the girls did great.
Our next door neighbor was there on the second night because his grandson was in the boys' hip hop class.
We didn't see him at the show since it was really crowded. But today he brought over some photos of the girls he had taken.
He often takes pictures and he had recognized them on the stage, so that was really nice.
The girls are anxious to watch the video of the show when it comes out.
They let the kids watch the show in between their dances, in a special section they reserved for the dancers, but they had to take groups by turn.
Shiloh was able to watch Vivian dance on both nights but Vivian didn't get to watch Shiloh at all and they both really want to see the whole entire show.

I took the girls to the playground yesterday.
It seems like we rarely had time for that when they both had dance classes during the week.
The girls mostly had the entire play area to themselves. They decided that they wanted to swing and be brave and have me push them really high.
Vivian was feeling on top of the world when we left.
She said "I went to the playground all full of happiness, but I left the playground all
full of daring-ness! :-D
