My camera was being quite flaky the night of the dress rehearsal so the pictures of the performance are few. We did get a couple but the night of the performance was completely different to watch. We were so proud of her, and yes, I will admit we both (Sorry, Lance!) cried. I am THAT mom. If she continues in ballet here, I'm sure I will cry next year when she's a firefly too. Regardless of the fact that I don't have many pictures, I will never forget the feeling of watching her "flit" out on stage. At the end of the performance, the cherubs were led out on stage for the curtain call and when Lucy walked out, her jaw dropped to see the 100+ dancers behind her. Then the cherubs were supposed to hold hands and Lucy kept breaking free so she could curtsy properly. She was hilarious.
She told me I was "very helpful" when I put her makeup on. Ha!
Here's a shot from dress rehearsal-- there was of course no flash photography during the ballet.
