Three reasons why Emily's dance recital didn't go well...

1. At the beginning of the first dance the bright lights flipped on after the entire stage was dark. The brightness apparently hurt Emily's eyes and she pulled her dress up over her eyes and left it there for the entire song.

2. During the second song she got an itch on her bum and used the tule skirt on her fancy dance costume to scratch it.

3. When picking Em up from back stage after the "performance" her dance teacher told me the only way she got Emily to go back on stage after the first dance (because of the bright light issue) was to bribe her with a trip to Chucky Cheese.

Looks like we're having gross pizza for dinner on Monday night! On a better note, Scott and I are now more secure about our decision to skip out on dance next year and to try soccer instead! :)

And don't worry. We sprang for the $24 DVD (you can't record the show yourself) and we fully intend on sharing both #1 and #2 after we pick up the DVD on 6/22. I hope one day Emily will look back on today and laugh!

One of our friends refers to his 5 year old nieces dance class as "standing lessons"...I think that usually sums it up pretty well!

I can't wait to see her performance. Too funny!

Yes it will be a great captured moment of the first, and last, dance recital.

This is totally fine with me. Did you see the lipstick and blush in the picture? Most girls loved it... Emily thought the blush was itchy, and had smeared the lipstick by the time we loaded up in the car. :)
