The Recital!!

After months and months of hard work the big night was here.  After many sit ups, lots of stretching, tons of practicing the routine and hours at the ballet bar, it was time to show what Carolyn and Elizabeth had learned.

Even though Elizabeth broke her foot, at ballet class, six weeks ago (she is out of her cast and in a walking boot now), she dressed up in her recital costume, sat on stage and did the arm movements to the routine.  Bless her heart.  She still had a great night.

This year the ballet studio did a Christian based theme.  It was so nice.  One of the older students designed the tee shirts for the opening number.  All of the students participate in the opening and closing numbers.
 My lovely young ladies.  They are growing up on Tim and I for sure.

Elizabeth in hers.  When I see these pictures I am reminded of the miracles God has done in her life.  We were told she would never walk and she does and even does ballet!  Glory to God!

I love these young ladies so much.  We are blessed beyond measure.

They both did a great job.  All the girls in the class did.  The whole program (all the classes performances) was about 2 hours long and we enjoyed every minute of it.   I am always amazed from year to year how much more graceful the girls get and how much they have matured in the art of ballet.

Thank you Aunt "S" and Uncle "B" for taking the time to come to their recital and for being so thoughtful to bring them such pretty boquets of flowers.

Also, a BIG thank you to our dear friend "A" for coming to watch them dance!  She is the one who got them interested in dancing years ago.

So today as I write this post...I give glory to God for all my beautiful daughters, that God gave to Tim and myself, to raise up to Him.  For the happy memories and enjoyment, of watching these two grow, from little infants to young ladies.  May they become as the virtuous women of the Bible, living forever to give God glory.

Psalm 149:3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.



  1. How beautiful! I think it is even sweeter that they are obviously so close. The fact that Elizabeth wasn't supposed to walk but can (usually) dance is amazing and miraculous and wonderful. You are so blessed with your daughters!

    1. Thank you so much Julie! May God pour out His blessings upon you and your family!

  2. I love the tshirt design! And the picture of the girls with the sun ray coming down is beautiful. Yes you are truly blessed! ((((((HUGS))))))) from MN :o)
