Friday Favorites {Dance Recital Edition}

by - Friday, June 10, 2016

Hey there, Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Erika, Narci & Andrea for Friday Favorites.
Millie Jo had her very first dance recital last Saturday & along with Coop's graduation, it was one of my very favorites from the week.
Dan & I decided last summer to enroll her in dance to see how she did.  I was a little worried at first because she was only 2 1/2 but she did great!  I mean, she LOVED it!  She asked me every single day if it was dance day.
Getting ready to go out on stage!
My mom got her a ballerina doll as a surprise & if she wasn't with Millie Jo she was with me "watching Millie Jo." ;)

These two pictures are actually from the rehearsal Friday night.  We weren't allowed to take pictures or video the day of the recital.
Dan surprised her with flowers & her face when she saw him walking toward her with them was priceless!
Mrs. Heather has made our first year of dance so wonderful.
I couldn't have asked for a better dance teacher for our sweet girl!
We are so thankful for our dance family!

I was told at Millie Jo's last class that she would be getting a very special trophy at the beginning of the recital but they wanted it to be a surprise to her.  I didn't know what she was getting it for, I just knew it was something special.  I'm so proud to say that she was picked as her class "Super Star."
She had her own little fan club there. 
Some I did not get a picture of her with because they left right after.

Love my girl so much!
As I was sitting at the recital watching the older girls dance there were 4 graduating seniors.  I couldn't help but think that could be Millie Jo one day if she really loves dance enough to stick with it & how we will look back on these days of her twirling around & around every day wondering how time flew by so quickly.
Her first year of dance has definitely been one we won't forget.
We are so proud of her!
Have a great weekend!
