Tomorrow's the day of little Ella's ballet exam. She is very excited. We've had extra Sunday practices for the last couple of months. She's practiced her dances at home. She cheered when I told her tomorrow was her big day. She can hardly wait. Why? She gets to wear her new lilac leotard and chiffon georgette skirt. The most exciting part about exam day is the new purple ribbon her ballet teacher has been promising all the little girls she'd get them to wear on exam day.
I'm a bit anxious for her, but Joey says she'll be fine. And, I know she will be, so I'm trying not to let my anxiety show. She has got lots of little props (sparkling wands, flower baskets, etc) that the teacher has been giving them to practice with. No wonder little girls love to be ballerinas. It's all make believe fairy princess dress ups.
Wish us luck!
