A Sugar Plum Tea….

Caedmon and I got to have a mommy/son date last weekend and we had a great time. With him being in the Nutcracker and in both evening/late shows we decided that he is likely going to need the time during the matinees for naps/rest and so that meant that he wasn’t going to get to…

A Queen’s Page…

This past weekend Caedmon made his ballet production debut. And he couldn’t have been happier or had a better time. After a week of tech and dress rehearsals Saturday morning finally arrived, the day of his first two shows. He was very excited. During the week while we were driving to rehearsals I reminded him…

Auditions….

As I’ve mentioned before Caedmon loves ballet and has from a very young age when he went with me to one of my adult ballet classes and told me “Mommy, I wuv ballet, I want dance ballet.” When we use to go to the open gym play time at our prior gymnastics place before moving,…

A Nutcracker Day…

This past Saturday Leighton, Caedmon, and I got to do what is becoming an annual tradition and go and see the Nutcracker together. In the years past however we have gone down to Denver to see the performance by the Colorado State Ballet. This year however I learned that the place that Caedmon just started…

A Moment In Time…

We have been so fortunate to live near a great gym that not only offers gymnastics classes which all the boys have taken, but also a dance…

Dancing Away…

Caedmon is in a cast for 6 weeks. The morning after he broke his leg he looked at me and with tears in his eyes said “Mommy, Miss Summer is making a dance for us and I can’t dance”. He broke my heart. I told him, “Caedmon, we will find a way to help you…

Bow-Lay

So as you may recall I decided to take an adult beginning ballet class last fall. And I had a blast. The class stopped for the summer and I have missed it. Not only did I learn a lot and have fun, but my running and overall fitness got better (enough that I noticed the…

Tutus and Slippers

Yes I signed up for an adult ballet class. But no I do not wear a tutu. I thought I should clarify those two things before I got much further. It’s been a long time since I did ballet. A. Long. Time. Like I think 3rd or 4th grade. I’m not exactly sure why I…
