That's a lot of itty bitties in one little class, and I'm pretty sure they gave their teacher a run for her money!
Mattie, front and center in all her cuteness.
This year was interesting for her. At the beginning of her fourth semester in this level, three new little girls started in her class, so the level of everything totally changed. I think she was pretty bored. She is looking very forward to starting in a big girl class in the fall!
The beloved Miss Shanny
Th cranky, tired girl unwilling to smile for a picture. If she only knew how well her lack of cooperation turned out!
Mattie and her big girl cousins, Hannah and Emily!
And the very serious ballerina.
Mattie hates to have her hair up in any way. She will wear it how I fix it if I insist, but she always prefers to have it left alone. As we were getting ready for her dress rehearsal and I was putting her hair in a bun, she said quite disgustedly, "Ugh. I would have thought about this whole ballet thing if I knew I had to put my hair up in a bundle."
