Pre dress rehearsal preparation...
And all I can say is, "Thank you, Auntie Sarri!" She knew I was fretting over the prospect of having to actually 'do' Molly's hair, so she volunteered (or perhaps I begged!) to take over. Thank goodness! And thank goodness for gel, bobby pins, and hairspray!
The dress rehearsal:
Please note that at the very second that this picture was taken, Molly was doing the EXACT same dance step as the other dancers! Woohoo, Molly! (Trust me, I think that may have only happened once. Future dance star? We'll just say that she was darn cute up there!)
As if it's not obvious, there is a bit of an age range in Molly's ballet class--ages 4 to 7. A bit of a height range, too! :)
Post dress rehearsal pictures. Too cute for words!
Walking to dress rehearsal #2. Tap/Jazz.
Again, a wide range of ages is evident. Or someone never got 'height juice' in her bottle during her infant years!
Backstage prior to the real deal. One of my favorite pics!
Another favorite. Sweet, sweet, and sweet!
