It's a good thing her middle name is NOT "grace"

We are signing up Nora for ballet lessons in the fall. I am signing her up for a few reasons:

1. I was in ballet FOREVER and loved it. I'm not requiring Nora to love it, just give it a chance.
2. For the past 6 months she has been "doing ballet". She even has a little routine that she will do for you...if you ask (and sometimes if you don't).
3. She's a little girl. Is there anything cuter than a little girl in a tutu? I don't think so!

What we didn't realize was that we would be enrolling her in ballet lessons for her health.

We are learning that our Nora does not come by grace naturally.

Last night, it was time to get ready for bed. I was in Nora's room waiting for her. She comes running into her room, trips on the carpet and lands, face first, at the foot of her bed.

And this is what she looks like now:

Isn't she pretty? Now, she didn't come equipped with grace, but she is chalk-full of the "drama". Oh, she can cry and wail and scream and plead. There is no reasoning with this girl when she is injured.

Happily though, the black eye that she is sporting is the worst of her injuries. It could have been much worse.

Here she is, at VBS tonight. Nice eyeshadow!
Hopefully those ballet lessons will pay off. If not, I don't know how much more her face can take.

I took ballet lessons as a child and this year my little girl will also be starting lessons. For a second you sounded like you were talking about my little girl.

She looks so grown up in the picture of her at VBS. I guess she takes after her Aunt Beth and Julia. We are not exactly known for our grace. So cute!
