Kara's ballet performance

Kara had 2 ballet performances this weekend. We had tickets for the saturday show. They did Cinderella. Kara was supposed to be a flower in Cinderella's wedding bouquet. Here she is entering the stage. She is in the blue skirt, following behind the slow girl in the pink skirt toward the back of the stage. It was difficult to get a good picture, because Kiersten kept pulling on my arm, trying to see the camera, but I got a few. Here are the little flowers dancing with the fairy godmother and the spell. Kara is in the back.
Here they are twirling off stage after their bow.
They were the first in the curtain call, so by the time the whole cast was done, you couldn't see them way in the back. So I didn't get a good picture with the whole cast. Kara is the 2nd girl to the left of the jesters.

The first group of girls that were sent out after the show had been changed back into their clothes. A lot of the parents got really upset about it, and were throwing a fit. So the lady in charge told he helpers to change the kids back into their costumes. So it took a while for me to be able to pick her up. She is so proud of her costume. She chose a blue skirt because she wanted to match with Cinderella. (even though Cinderella was in white) I think she thought the fairy godmother was Cinderella.
Some lady asked if I'd like her to take a picture of me with Kara, so I took her up on it. See how huge I'm getting? I feel like I should be in the last 2 weeks instead of the last 2 months!
I kept asking her to stand still for a picture, but she wouldn't stop posing.

This was as normal as I could get her to stand.
She was so happy to get flowers. She insisted on keeping them in a vase in her bedroom.

She had lots of fun doing the ballet. Ben and I sure are glad the performance is over, and we can finally have our weekends back to normal.

Oh how fun! It brings back a lot of memories of all the ballet performances my daughters had. I was so proud of them, and they really enjoyed performing. Kara looks beautiful in her costume!
