Leiya's First Ballet Experience

Leiya is now tkaing Ballet lessons. This is the story of her fist day, and the evening leading up to it when we needed to get all her Ballet stuff.






Carla and Leiya went by themselves, as sort of a mother daughter adventure, and what an adventure it was...They first started off with dinner at Taco Bell, which went well and spirits were high.






At Wal Mart, they began looking for the required items: Black Leotard and Pink tights. Carla had been told they were at Wal Mart. They were, just in large kid sizes. Nothing even close to what Leiya needed.

So then it was off to the shoe store to get the Pink Leather Slippers Leiya needed.







Well, although this pictures looks happy, what you dont see, is that they looked and looked and had to settle on these shoes, which were a couple sizes to big.....




Now it was off to Target, surely they had the Leotard and tights......um, no they didn't...back to Wal Mart to see if they could make something work....

At Wal Mart, nothing seemed to work....the Leotards there were way to big and there was nothing Carla could do to make them work....well, back again to Target in a last ditch effort to find something....


Well, couldn't find anything black, so again, they had to settle....



A compromise....black with pink.....cute, but not what the class required.....Luckily, a friend had an old Leotard Leiya ended up using...what an adventure they had...thanks Gianna!!!!


With the clothing adventure out of the way, it's down to business....getting ready to do Ballet!

Leiya in a tu-tu....doing ballet of course.....

Thanks to Kaelyn staying after her own class, she made Leiya feel more comfortable and Leiya had a better time....Thanks Kaelyn!

My goodness she looks so adorable in her little tutu! I can't believe she's old enough for ballet class already. She looks like she is really enjoying herself!
