Ballerina Toes




We've been driving to dance for a lot of years.  
We've logged a lot of hours at the studio.
All my hot and tropical vacation fund money goes to classes and slippers!

Mikayla has been working so hard this year.
As a parent, it is really exciting to see a child reach goals and set new ones.
She is already accomplishing things I only dreamed about doing!

This year she got pointe shoes in ballet.
Apparently they get thrashed quickly
{along with the dancer's pretty feet}
So we decided to take some photos while the shoes are still lookin' good.

Consider these my hot and tropical vacation pictures...








Bracelets were Mikayla's idea
Cute, right?




Fan was Mailee's contribution.
Love it!

This might be my favourite.


Mikayla's other favourite thing is reading/books/libraries/bookstores. 
 Made sense to combine her two loves:)


My other favourite pic.
This is my girl.
Dancing, reading, teal-loving achiever.


I have to say, taking out my "big camera", or "real camera" felt SO GOOD!
Being creative also felt SO GOOD!
I've been in a bit of a slump recently and this was reviving.

Pull out your cameras ladies.
Let's not let our family's memories be captured only on our IPhones!!!
