Marisa starts school!

In her new tap shoes. She looks so proud.

Dance school that is. I had been looking around for an MDO program for Marisa. I really wanted something with Spanish instruction. She has also been showing a strong interest for anything dance related. She loves dress up and asks for me to put on music just so she can dance. One weekend there were ice skaters on tv and she was mezmerized by the choreography. She kept saying she wanted to dance like them. I considered ice skating for a a moment but then learned about this great mothers day out arts program, a bilingual one! I didn't need more convincing. I signed her up. Today was tap day but she will also have ballet and gymnastics. In addition to dance they have theatre, art, and music and some reading and math instruction, all in Spanish. Yesterday when we toured and visited, the music teacher played the congas . I love that she's getting culture on top of everything else too. She is so excited and I'm so glad I found something that is a perfect fit for her. Well, I'm off to cuddle with my newborn. It's been a long time since I've had a chance to enjoy that tranquility and sereneness of holding a newborn in the silence AND in the light of the day. :)

Sounds like Angelina Ballerina. I wish there was a place like that around here! I bet she is loving it!
