Ballet exams 2015
Ruth was so thoughtful and brought some loom band things with and taught Hannah how to make something.
Rachel is now Ruth's offical "bun maker". I wasn't sure I fully agreed with how she was putting the bun net on, but after trying myself, I realized how very hard it was.
She has so much hair that the bun is HUGE!!! The "pony" itself needs to be done in two and the two joined, as there is just too much hair.
Well done Rachel. You do a great job with it.
They are both so lovely.
We knew Rachel's exam went well as she came in flushed and smiling. Mrs Vink had told her the examiner didn't smile easily, so she would have to work for smiles. I think this was just what Rachel needed to motivate her to smile, and she proudly told us she got quite a few smiles. :-)
We don't get to watch the exams, so we look forward to getting the girls results in a few weeks. I am sure both girls have done really well.
Ruth always loves starting the car for me, so today I said she could hop in the front with me to drive up the drive way (100m from the park to the hall). You can see how thrilled she was. :-)
Well done girls.
Another result of the day was that Hannah just loved watching the girls warm up and was copying the younger ones. She told me she wished she had not stopped ballet. So I chatted to the teacher and she said that Hannah was more than welcome to join now. So Hannah was thrilled.
