The BIG Day is TOMORROW

We have been taking what seems like the slowest approach towards a dance recital ever.  Costumes got sent home about a month and a half ago...the girls have been going nuts with anticipation ever since.  A couple weeks ago they had picture day, so they actually got to put on their costumes instead of just staring at them hanging in my closet.  Sidenote: I cannot believe they had the willpower to leave them alone in my closet.

Picture day was a good learning experience.  I learned:

1. Maggie's first instinct after I painstakingly do her hair-to touch it.  Not gently, but in a heavy handed smushing fashion.

2. Audrey's first instinct after I painstakingly do her hair-to touch it.  Not gently, but in a heavy handed smushing fashion.

3. Tripping will happen and tights will be torn.

4. Make-up is incredibly difficult to put on a moving target.









Amos did an awesome job of entertaining Wardie, who wanted nothing else but to be free to knock over every light, camera, and tiny dancer.




At the very end, Audrey was kind enough to throw a crazy fit.  At least it was after she got her picture taken. 


That brings us to THIS week.  On Wednesday, we had dress rehearsal.  The girls were so excited to get to go on the big stage at the high school.


(And, no, their teacher is not twerking, she's marking their spots with tape.)


 



Once again, Amos saved the day by entertaining Ward.  Though, both boys sat pretty still to watch the dancing.






Having seen the rehearsal, I am certain we are in for quite the show.  Probably with nose picking.
