Laura had her annual ballet performance this past Saturday. She was a "Jeweler" in the ballet "Cinderella". Naturally, being Laura, she did her part perfectly and even helped out a lost little dancer here and there. She smiled, danced and got so absorbed with the whole experience that she was exhausted afterwards and took a two hour nap. Laura was magnificent and she really, really loves to dance. (Wonder where she got that from?!)
I didn't actually get to see her perform much. I was backstage helping my two classes (Jewelers and itty bitty Bluebirds) get onstage and their peices performed without incident. However, my folks, Jason's Mom, and Jason thoroughly enjoyed watching her and said she was wonderful. Sara's enjoyment was at another level, however. She was absolutely entranced with what was onstage until the awe wore off and then she was a running commentary on her experience. Finding "my Lala" was the best part and Laura said she even heard her! Yes, Sara and Jason left at the first intermission.
I think that one of Laura's favorite parts was receiving flowers afterwards. Because we both know Laura and her preferences, my parents and us gave her pink roses (which we found ourselves buying at the same moment in line at Walmart) which she adored and J's mom got her a red rose for the day as well.
