Tiny Dancer

Whenever I hear the song "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John I always think of that Friends episode where Phoebe mistakes the lyrics and sings, "Hold me closer Tony Danza!" Anywho! I am loving this work from home thing  for so many reasons. On Friday I took an early lunch so I could go to Kate's school and watch her ballet lesson. I loved it. It was ballet chaos. It was more 12 little girls dancing to  their own beat than refined ballet but what do you expect? It was a scream to watch. I was so proud of her. She had all eyes on her teacher with only momentary sneak peeks and smiles at me. It was so cute when she would sneak those little glances at me. My most favorite part of the class was when one of the little girls in the back row said, "Kate, your Mommy is SO proud of you!" I guess my face kind of gave it away:) Here are some videos I caught. The first one cracked me up because she turned around and gave me that little thumbs up  that she always gives when she is over the top happy.

The last video was our favorite. Marin was mesmerized. It may get as much attention as the Chicken Dance video. ;o)
And, I know I am her aunt, but Kate was by far the best one in her class. Seriously, what a good listener!!! She did so GREAT!

(And congrats on the 10k!)

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
