One of the things that makes me happiest is learning something new. And I think that Flanna has inherited this trait from me, because she loves nothing more than mastering a new skill (as long as SHE was the one who thought up the idea, anyway!). Today, she started her first ballet class at "the mansion" (as she calls it). And the best part was that my mom was in town and got to go with us to the class! We sat and had a chai latte while Flanna danced--what a treat!
Flannery seemed to love the class, and afterward showed me how to do first position and a plie. A good first day!
