Just like we survived the dance recital, we couldn’t escape the big show at the Lil gym. This is our second go round at this – and thankfully this is much more low key – not sure we can survive two productions in one month. Cailee got to perform at all the different rotations what she has learned. She is still shy in front of a crowd, but I really do think she’s gained quite a bit of confidence through this experience, and her other extracurricular activities – so if for nothing else – I feel that we are still ahead even though it’s often a little crazy taking her to and fro.

She still loves to shove her fist in her mouth when she is nervous – rendering anything she does say – intelligible. She’s got her mom’s nerves of jelly in front of an audience. But look at the great big grin when she’s hanging from the high bar.
