In Her Happy Place

Bitty.  Dancing.  Happy. 

Which makes the increasing price of her dance classes almost worth it.  I say "almost" because there were several weeks in the spring when she flatly refused to take part in the class at all and we thought about quitting.  Instead we just gave it a break for a month or two and now look. Joy!  I've been debating about what to do come fall - the busy girl will be starting soccer for the first time (a practice and a game every week) plus full-day school for the first time and I don't think I should tax her resources by adding one more thing to her schedule.  But then I saw these pictures Troy took of her last dance class of the summer and I'm heartsick thinking of not continuing with our beloved Miss Kim!  What to do!?!

We are looking at the same dilemma! It is so hard to figure out where the balance is. I love that first picture! So darling!

I say bag the soccer and just let her dance. It looks like she loves it!

Awesome photos!
I agree with Melissa! You can't deny it makes for a happy girl (and a happy girl makes for a happy mom!).

my mom made me do soccer and never let me do any dance or gymnastics classes - she was afraid I'd turn out too "girly." I always wanted to do the dance... sigh...
