Scout's first ballet recital

I wanted everyone to know that Scout's first ballet recital is coming up. It is on Wednesday, June 15th at 4:30. Considering that it is in the middle of the week at 4:30 we don't expect you all (or anyone really) to come, but I wanted to let you all know so you know and give you the chance to go if it's something you want to do. It takes place in American Fork in her ballet studio. It will have an Alice in Wonderland theme, and it will just be the little ones. The deal is, the regular ballet company where Scout takes lessons, is doing an Alice In Wonderland ballet, but starting this year, the youngest class no longer performs with the company. The moms complained about the frequent and long rehearsals and the expensive costumes for a part that lasted like 1 minute. So this year they have decided to just have the girls wear simpler costumes and just perform in their own studio for parents and relatives.

I'm not complaining. This seems a whole lot easier to me and frankly, since last month when I had to do the entire scripture talk in primary for her because she refused to open her mouth, I have my doubts she would even get on that giant stage in front of hundreds of people. Then it would have been REALLY sucky to go through all that for a nice case of stage fright. It might have been alright though, since she doesn't have to open her mouth. We may never know (well, maybe we will next year).

I tried to get her to open her eyes, but she told me that girls look prettier with their eyes closed. (??).

They must look prettier with pursed lips too. Who knew?

I should be able to make it! I will be working until 3:15 that day, so I can leave straight from work. These pictures are so cute! I bet she is closing her eyes in the one with her back to us.

So cute! I wish I could, but just don't think I should.
