Hailey's Recital

Yesterday was Hailey’s 5th Ballet recital, and it couldn't have come on a better day. Vic was relatively headache free all day. First time this week.

Hailey performed 3 numbers.
- a Tap number to “We Like to Party”, (The Six Flags Commercial song)
- a jazz number to “I Don’t Dance’, from High School Musical 2
- a Ballet number to “Enchanted Suite” from the movie Enchanted

As usual, she did a wonderful job and was beautiful. She wants to be a member of Steps Dance Company, but that’s a lot of hard work and a lot of expense. I told her she’d have to work out all summer long and get in real good shape to audition and make company.
So, I have another, albeit inspirational, goal for this summer.

One thing that I did discover yesterday in the recital was that the artist Fergie has a pretty good voice. I’d never heard the song Finally before. Some of the older Company dancers did a number to the song and it was beautiful. It’s stuck in mine and Vic’s head, so I had to download from iTunes.

Gran Gran and Pa Paw Kelly are coming in today. The kids are really excited, but what they don’t know is they’re bringing a big surprise. Can’t say now what it is, I’ll let the cat out tonight.
All for now. More later.

Oh and here are pics from the recital. Unfortunately we were sitting really far back and my digital camera only has a 3x optical zoom, so I had to use the digital zoom. Next camera will have a minimum 10x optical zoom.

Good recital photos! I'm glad Vic felt better over the weekend.

Good luck with your surgery on Wed.
