These shoes ... these shoes sure saw some dancing this year.

The little dancer wearing them worked so hard. And you can see it.
They held together for the last comp with tape and polish and crossed fingers.

She had new shoes ... but these are the ones she wanted to wear. And I can see why. She knows how they feel. How they respond. They are an extension of her. It's going to take a lot of work next year to wear a new pair in to feel the same.

We had a small break from practice once school broke up. We had travelling to do ... and the small matter of Christmas.

But now Christmas is over she is back. There are still two weeks till dancing kicks in again - and she really wants to be ready to go from the start.

Practice is a funny thing ... finding a time she can concentrate is hard with a two year old sister. We seem to have hit the sweet spot though. Nothing makes practice more attractive than being allowed to stay up past bedtime. I really really love this time.

I am very much looking forward to lessons starting up again! I am so ready for the teachers input and a list of what to work on! She is far too good for me!
