Old Lady Ballet

Ok, so I did it! I signed up for a trial class for adult ballet and made sure over the phone that I wouldn't be the only 30+ year old woman there. (There were 6 of us hooray!) It was last thursday and it started at 7:45 pm which is awesome because the kids are settling down and Greg puts them to bed! It was alot of fun and challenging too. I had to take some ballet back in the day for gymnastics but not much. The teacher was great and I am starting to remember what the moves are called which always helps and just enjoyed dancing! :) I think I will sign up for a while since we don't belong to a gym or anything and because it was fun! Notice there are no pictures of the old ladies in leotards and tights ;)

Good for you Heather! I have a secret desire to take a clogging class, but haven't ever done it because I feel silly. When you have a recital, we want to come!! (P.S. how do you alternate pictures and comments?? I can't figure it out)

That is so cool! I went to the ballet last night and was thinking to myself, "I wish they had classes for old ladies." Yay!

Good job, Heather! I took a ballet class when I was living it up in England. That stuff is tougher than it looks! (And don't be afraid of being the tallest one there, either. Those short ballerinas are just wimps.)

Alice! I took clogging at Ricks College and It was the MOST fun!! You should do it! Did you know that you can buy a set of clogs or taps and have them put on the bottom of any pair of shoes? It is a lot cheaper than buying a pair of clogging or tap shoes.

Ok, there are two ways...

When you are uploading pictures check center before you upload them. Then after they are loaded go into edit the post and create space between the picture codes just by putting your cursor at the end of one code and hitting enter. Then add your text between the two codes, hit enter again for more space. Then you will see the code for the next picture. Then click below to add more text.

Or if you forget to hit center before you uploaded your pictures you can just keep hitting enter between picture codes so that your text appears below the pictures you want it to, kind of a trial and error thing, but it doesn't take long.

Hope this makes sense!

You + Ballet = Hott Stuff!!

Good for you! I'm so jealous, seeing as how I'm in no way "gracefull". I will just have to live vicariously through you!

You're awesome!! I would never have the guts to do that, but I kinda secretly wish I could...

but not enough to REALLY do it!!
