Denver Nutcracker…

Last Thursday 5 of us got to go down to Denver and watch a mid day performance of Colorado Ballet’s Nutcracker. We got tickets through Caedmon’s dance company and had a great day. The 2 littles had preschool and then got to spend the afternoon with Honey and Grandpa so they had a great day…

Sugar Plum Tea 2019

On Saturday my mom, Coppelia, and I got to have a girls day. We dropped off goodies for the Sugar Plum Tea, and then did a little Christmas shopping. This year everyone in our family is picking out an ornament that we will wrap up and then unwrap on Christmas eve and put on our…

Library Nut…..

It’s that time of year where there are going to be some Nutcracker posts. We are fast approaching show time and in the mean time there are a lot of Nutcracker things going on. Monday was a prime example, as a community outreach the ballet company that Caedmon dances for, Centennial State Ballet, did a…

Men In Tights…

Caedmon had his Spring dance recital this past weekend and it was really fun. He was in two dance classes this year, a regular ballet class and also a boys dance class. His regular dance class did their spring recital piece to a selection of music from the ballet, Coppélia. He really liked that he…

Nutcracker 2018

We survived our first Nutcracker. It was actually a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Caedmon just soaked up every moment and during one of the dress rehearsals I caught him sneaking out and standing in the wings watching the older dancers. He was just in awe and loved it all. Two…

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…

This past weekend was dance recital weekend. As I think I’ve mentioned in the past Caedmon has fallen in love with dancing and loves his weekly ballet/tap class. 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…
