Georgia doing her thing

Georgia willingly and excitedly performed on stage for the first time at Heartland. Her class did 'the boy who cried wolf' and the kids were all wolves that 'ate' the cardboard sheep. It was really cute. And I was so impressed at Georgia's lack of self-conciousness or fear. She had good teachers that were all members of a study circle that was doing whichever Ruhi book teaches you to teach children's classes. They were very organized and had fun projects and songs and lots of playdough and a great student to teacher ratio, as you can see in the following picture.

Georgia had her last ballet class Saturday. We thought there would be some kind of performance but there wasn't. Oh well. Here are some pictures of class instead.

Miss Ballet herself. I have a little lavendar ballet outfit for Georgia from that great second-hand store in Wilmette. She looks very much at home in the studio.

Love all the male teachers for the kids. I've never seen a ratio of men to women like that in a class at a summer school. So Georgia had confidence in performing! She must have felt safe and happy.

Thanks for making the effort to send pics along.
