All Things Sophie

 Sophie has been a busy little girl lately.  We are so thrilled with all she is learning and the education she is getting both at school and in her ballet classes.
 The kids at Sophie's school spend a lot of time at our art museum.  All semester they have been working on an abstract painting of someone in their family.  Then they put it on display at the museum.
 Sophie chose to paint John Curtis.  He was expecting it to be a little more realistic and informed me that did NOT look like him and he hoped she didn't want to put it in his room.  We're proud of our little artist though and all she learned.

She is still loving ballet and takes twice a week.  She's progressed quickly this semester and has moved up 2 levels since the summer.  I snapped some video during our parent observation day earlier in the month.

Another great part of Sophie's school is that she gets to take piano there.  It's a group lesson, so probably not as good as individual, but she gets to stay at school to do it so it's working well for us right now. 

On the last day of school before the break she had a little recital with her group.  I realize this is a sound only parents would be proud of, but we are.

Finally, Sophie got to perform in her first Nutcracker ballet this past weekend.  She was an angel and loved every minute of the experience.  It was long, exhausting hours, but she's ready to do it again next year.

We couldn't video during the performance, but I managed to get it during rehearsal one night.

Grammy, Bumpaw, DeeDee, G-Momma, Poppa,and lots of friends came to see her perform.

That is what our little girl has been up to!

Best gliding angel out there! I am so impressed at how far she has come from that little girl who ran into walls when she learned to walk. Such beauty and grace! It was truly beautiful!
