I had the opportunity to capture some shots of Sugar Bear's dress rehearsal the other day. What fun! I only got teary a FEW times....okay...a lot, but I'm a sappy mama like that. I just couldn't take the feeling of pride that was trying to bust right out of my chest. ♥ I think Sugar was feeling it too.....look at that smile!
You might remember that a week or so back, I posted a bit about Sugar's HULA obsession.
Well, now you know why.
It all began in dance class, and I have to admit I never thought she'd master the hula hoop at this young age, but she proved me wrong.
This little honey took her performance seriously. She LOVED being a flying saucer. And why not? .....she could SOAR!
But I have to say it is my favorite when she walks like a dancer at demi-point. I just love her little tippy toes. ♥
The face of concentration........it makes me giggle.
The look of enjoyment......it gives me ease. You see, about half way through the year, Sugar was ready to quit. She just felt done, and we had weeks and weeks of my gently guiding her to continue what she started. It was hard, but I wanted her to follow through with her commitment. Seeing her little face all lit up on stage....it was my payoff.
And it was Priceless!
