A couple days ago was her dance recital. Remember the dance recital last year... We thought she would be more comfortable now that she’s been dancing with the same teacher for a while.


Well, one shouldn’t underestimate stage fright.

Below is a picture of Shiloh (follow the arrow) sitting next to Ben. Her eyes red, swollen with tears. She stayed sitting the entire recital, refusing to perform. Poor little one…

On the other hand, Asa had no problem joining the dancers during the short intermission.2

After the recital, Shiloh handed the performance tutu back to her wonderfully understanding and kind teacher, who talked to her a little, encouraging her to continue dancing at home and everywhere.3

After the recital, when everyone has left… No audience, no problem.


The boys who came along to encourage her.6

No audience, no problem.
