This is the best picture I have of Lissa at the dance recital. Anytime she saw a camera she had such a serious expression you would think she hated the whole deal. Since she told me last night on the way home that she wants to take classes again, I doubt that is the case! LOL But for whatever reason, she could not crack a smile. This was my little squirrel back stage, making a craft. We parents who keep the kids busy till they go on, work in the cafeteria plying them with snacks and crafts!
He is a trooper too as yesterday, on day 2 of recital, the tap on one of his shoes came 3/4 off. He came over to me and I had to yank the whole tap off. It didn't bother him though and he went right out and performed as if nothing unusual had occured.
His jazz performance was my favorite, probably because it was HIS favorite and you could see how much he loved it. Boy was I tired though by weekends end. Yesterday, 2 of my friends who had worked backstage the day before had tickets to watch the show and needed someone to help their children change. So I had 3 extra kids to help change into multiple costumes. By 9 p.m. last night I was ready for bed, though I did not get there till 10 as we have a large and difficult paper job to complete as well.
