My little JBean started ballet. She has been asking for a year. I finally found a place that seems like a good fit. I wasn't sure if she could handle it, but it is going really well. This was her second week. She is working so hard. She has the best dance teacher, Miss Jennifer, and she is very understanding and so good with the girls. She is wonderful to JBean.
With her autism, she has a little bit of a struggle with getting into some of the positions, stretching her toes and she can't skip (she gallops instead) but she really loves it, and is very happy to be there. She gets to be flower princess in the Nutcracker and is just over the moon!

Mama is hair-challenged, I got it up, but it doesn't look too great
