Our Highland Dancer

Danica had her formal examinations for both ballet and highland dance last week. Each session, although short, involved some time off school. (And who knew that beginning dancers like this would be tested?)

On the highland morning, Sue got her almost all ready -- except for those pernickety shoes -- here at home. So, I took a few pictures in the limited space that I have to work with in this place.

Her hair had to be pulled into a bun, and she must pose with her fingers just so although the left hand wasn't quite set when I took this. Note that the dress code was very specific: kilt, white blouse, and hair pulled back. Finding a blouse and kilt at the last minute was quite problematic for Shauna, but the problem was eventually solved.

Here's one that Sue took at the venue having pleaded with another dancer's mother for help in lacing up the shoes.

This is March Break, which means the opposite of break for Sue and me. We will be babysitting over at their place all week and will come home in a heap. This is my way of saying that I will be very quiet on the blogging front this week, both in terms of posting and commenting.

I do have a post concerning Jonathan  in the queue, but that will be that.

Fun fun!! Love that first photo--her pose is sweet and the washed out background makes her skirt pop.

A beautiful young lady...perfect pose.
And, may I say, AC, she looks just like you! Sweet photograph. Give her hugs for me.

She's a pretty girl and she does not look like a beginner at all! Have a fun week with the grand kids, AC.
