The wonderful, yet often hairpulling life story of a stay-at-home mom of five cuties (Hailey, Shelby, Dylan, Ashley & Logan) and the journey through life raising our family with the best hubby around (love you, Kevin), and enjoying the blessings God provides to us daily while trying to keep it all in perspective when bumps in the road arise!

Ok, so the heading is a joke. Hailey did not get her ballet genes from me. Thankfully the apple fell far from my non-coordinated tree! I like to think the genes skipped 2 generations and came from my Grandma Fergie. I think she liked to dance (though not sure she ever took ballet), but she seemed to have art just flowing through her veins. Anyway....just thought I'd post a couple pics of me in my ballet years. I think I only danced for 2 or 3 years and once I got to pointe I noticed how badly my feet looked and I called it quits! But here's a few cute pics of me...in my recital costume. I think I was "sunshine" or something like that in Hansel and Gretal? All I know is I was bummed I didn't get the rainbow costume like some of my friends did. I was not a fan of yellow. But this costume stood the test of time...my girls all got to wear it. Would you call that hand a Balanchine hand? Not close at all, I know. I did not miss my calling there. :)
And me by the stage door before a performance, I think. I would guess it's Nutcracker, but not sure. Nice flower pants. I might not have been a good dancer, but at least I had style! haha :)
It's fun to reminisce and I hope this shows Hailey that someday she'll appreciate all the pics I take (or took)...most likely now I will never get a pic of her in a costume...or at least one taken by me. :(
