And I think I failed to post this on the blog too. Our girl made it into the SAB summer intensive flier that is sent out in mass mailings. Last year she was in the booklet for the auditions...I think this is a step up bc a lot more people see it. Not that we care about that...but it was still a fun surprise. I had no idea about it, nor did Hailey. I got it from one of her best friend's moms at church. I just figured she wasn't telling me bc she is a ballerina of few words...but she really had never seen it. What a cute pic too. She looks like she's saying "mmmm, I love SAB!" :)
And a lovely pic of her going to the ballet a couple weeks ago. I stink at posting these pics...she sends me a few here and there, but I always forget to post them. She's a lucky duck to get to see so many NYCB ballets for free! I am trying not to be jealous! And I am trying not to shed too many teas that I will miss her first performance in two weeks...at the SAB Winter Ball. She and half her class will be performing. I have almost bought tickets a couple times to go see her, but I know we can't afford it. If only money grew on trees and NYC wasn't so far away. Sigh. I am so proud of this girl of ours and the leap of faith she's taken leaving her home and making a new one so far away. She has been gone 6 months now. That is a long time for a 15 year old. And soon she will be Sweet 16 and I will be wiping tears away that I have a daughter so old...and too far away to celebrate with. Sigh. Miss you, Hays! Love you soooooooo much!
