Ballet Class

Mackenzie has her Ballet class on Wednesdays after school. She was originally in a Creative Movement class for 4-6 year olds. But most of the children in the class were only 4 and not always cooperative. Mackenzie really takes this seriously, she loves to dance! So I asked the school's director if she could move up to the Beginning Ballet class, it is for 7-10 year olds and she was almost 6. She said it would be too old for her, that she might not be able to keep up with them and might lose focus and disrupt the class! "" I said, "You don't know how determined my daughter is. Just let her have a chance in the class, one time. See if she can dance like the rest of them."

So they let her dance with the older class for one night. And both the Director and the Teacher, Miss Laura said she is totally ready for this class!! They were really impressed with her focus and her attitude! That's my Mackenzie!

She also loves learning all of the words in French. She said she wants to be "en point", I told her she will have to wait a few years for that!

Mackenzie practices a lot! She wants me to put a mirror and a ballet barre in the basement so she can practice at home too! Maybe I will...
Oh yeah...these pictures were taken with my brand spanking new digital camera!!! I got a Canon PowerShot A590 IS yesterday! It is awesome! I love being able to take pictures and upload them right away. It is a lot easier than running the film up to WalMart every week or so, and cheaper too! But it takes so long for the picture to take, I will still have to use my Nikon 35mm for my best pictures of the baby, the digital keeps missing her smile!
