lily had her big end of the year ballet performance last week.
it turned out to be more work than anticipated and a bigger commitment than i'd expected.
but for as much as she bemoaned ballet all year, she loved performance week.
she rehearsed two nights in a row for hours on end and came out on stage beaming.
and even though one of her wings got caught on the curtains on the way out, her spirit was not broken and she loved every minute of it.
