The ballet bug has bitten

. . . and now I'm waiting for the "I want a horse" speech.  Doesn't every girl want to take ballet lessons and/or riding lessons?  I know I wanted both when I was in grade school.

Elizabeth has taken a sudden interest in ballet.  Luckily she has a Kindle Fire and was able to look up dance positions and read about the suggested equipment.

She started the day with a big bun in her hair which was then decorated for dancing.
She added a twirly skirt, top, and tights to approximate a tutu and tights.  She was dying to have something like ballet shoes and I suddenly remembered I had some old ones in my closet.  She dug them out and with a few adjustments had a pair of ballet shoes that made her happy.  Me too.
