Baby Blue Ballerinas

I don't know about you guys. But I am pretty sure 3 year old ballerinas just might be the cutest thing I have ever seen! Chloe had her "recital" last week, It wasn't so much a recital as all the parents were invited to come watch their class to see what they have been learning. The University only does a big recital every 3 years and I think they did it last year, but I was really happy with just watching the class, ALOT less stress on everyone involved. Chloe started out LOVING ballet and would go all by herself no problem. Then one week she was sick and didn't want to go in and had a meltdown so I had to come in with her.....and every week since then. I dont' really mind cause i LOVE watching!  
She was SO excited for everyone to come watch her she talked about it for days. We even had quite the turnout, My mom and dad came along with Sam and Landon and Tanner(Him and Landon were working out so they decided to come too), Auntie Suz and Lexie came too It was quite the party! 

So here are alot of half blurry pictures of chloe being ridiculously cute! 
When they first come in they all come sit on their little circle. Chloe is VERY attentive and does EXACTLY what the teacher says! 

This is her little friend Brooklyn, they are best buddies and always stand RIGHT beside each other. Claire is usually right there with them, but she was too shy this day. 

Her teacher is Miss Madison. She is awesome! she has the softest, most gentle voice and the kids hang on her every word. 

This is them doing a song called "Roly Poly" its adorable.

I tried to get this video to the bottom but it wouldn't work. So this is just them doing "monkeys on the bed" It's one of her favorites. She gets a little lost making sure we are watching her! ha such a little performer. My favorite is how she has to make sure her feet are in 1st position every time they stop. and she was the FIRST one to sit down every time, without being told. Yaaaa she is alot like me, teachers pet in the making! haha

She was always making sure her feet were in 1st position .

Look at that form?? she is going professional for sure!

They were drawing pictures on the floor with their sharpened "pencils." Then everyone got to say what they drew in their picture. Chloe said "a rainbow" just like half of the other kids said! ha ha

I just can't get over how stinking cute the look!! I was so sad when I found out they had to wear blue. But luckily Chloe has the best auntie ever who gave her lexies old outfit which is PERFECT! 

Just prancing around the room like ponies. they had to stop in this position "whoah" And you can see how many people were there watching. Loved it!

Just sitting patiently waiting for instructions....all by her lonesome! 

and again....perfect form! ha ha love her. 

They always get to play with balloons for a few minutes at the end. This is when Ashley starts trying REALLY hard to go out there and play. 

Then at the veeery end they do a freestyle dance in which they have to do some "thank you curtseys" They curtsey to thank their teacher and miss lori who plays the piano. Chloe watched her teacher the whole time and copied exactly was she was doing. so cute! 

 Pretty sure she is the cutest little ballerina that ever lived. But I may be a little biased ;) 

We are so proud of our Chloe Ballerina!!
