Tessa took another 6 week course of Ballet and Creative Dance from Miss Linda through the community center. On the last day she has the parents come and watch the class so the kids can show what they've learned.
Tessa loves to dance, but she was on another planet for the first half of the class or something. Then, whenever I would hold up the camera, she'd start hamming it up. Goofy kid. She snapped back into focus near the end of the class.
Trying to take pictures and videos with a wiggly one year old on your lap is harder than it sounds.
At the end of class, Miss Linda turns on "Under the Sea", and the students dance like different underwater sea creatures. This is Tessa's starfish:
And here she is as a dolphin doing her jump and dive:

The class:
We received the new community ed. Leisure catalog, and while looking at possible classes for Tessa, surprise, surprise, I glanced at the picture on the page and saw her face in there. Too funny. So, if you live 'round these here parts, you'll have to take a look.

That is so cute! I love how proud she is at the end! How lucky you are to have a daughter to do this with. Maybe one of my boys will dance... hmmm, probably not.

So, I guess my phone call came late. :) Anna was thrilled to see Tessa's picture in our magazine. She's famous now.

It looks like Tessa has her momma's pretty, long legs. I too, love the picture of her legs and ballet shoes. The picture of Cole grinning in the foreground is too cute. Love those mugs.

That is one cute little ballerina! Brings back fond memories of my little girls when they were in dance, too.
