Ballet, again.

Vince had his 3rd week of ballet this week. I took Edda with me to the 10 am class. I came home feeling a little sorry for myself because there really is nothing like being surrounded by a thousand very cute 4 year-old ballerinas swarming around Edda's wheelchair to make me feel a little sorry for myself.

I came home, Jeremy gave me a stern pep talk and I tried to pull myself out of my mucky-mood.

At 2 pm, we went back to the ballet studio with Edda for her first class this fall, very much prepared for Edda to be the most disabled person there (which is often the position I find us in), but it wasn't the case. And Edda really enjoyed it. Which is great! (But I'm still feeling a little sorry for myself. I'm not too worried, I'm sure I'll snap out of it soon.)

Those harnesses look fun! Do they hold up the kids who are completely nonambulatory? The little girl with RS I work with is starting dance back up in a week and a half and it is ALL she wants to talk about!

Well, Edda is always very cute in our eyes. She is special :)

Yes, Edda is a special kid and God wants her to be special. You are a special Mom too. Love you.

Edda looks SO ADORABLE in her ballet outfit! Those harnesses are great! How wonderful that Edda is dancing! I wish we had something like that around here, I bet Brooklyn would LOVE it!

This is so cool! I searched last night looking for a place around here that did that, but I am at a loss...I did find a place in Utah that is a gym of sorts that does respite two nights a week...to far to go, but would love to open one around here!
