Worlds Collide

The dance recital came and went.  It was a weekend of sparkles and makeup, hair dos and ballet shoes, family and friends.  Lona is in a ballet III/IV class so she was in all three shows.  She had so much fun that  she's asked to take another class.  We'll see what next year brings.  We arrived at the theater by 8 am for dress rehearsal Saturday morning and then were back again by 5:50.  We didn't get home until after 10 pm! What a long day for 5 minutes of dancing.  I volunteered to help in the back room with all the kids that night.  That was an experience.  I almost had to call security about a creepy and rude dad hanging out by the girls' bathroom.  Then of course we found out that Lona wasn't even listed in the program.  They messed up on that class.  They put the names of another class in there.  Oh well, no big deal.  Sunday we needed to be there at 11:30 for the 12:00 performance and I was able to watch the whole program.  Sunday night we were right back at the theater by 6 pm for that night's performance.  This time we left right after Lona's dance.  She really didn't need to be there for the rest of the performance.  It was a great performance and we loved it.
