My Little Dancer
It is amazing to me how quickly we pass from one phase to another in life. Most of the people who know me now don't really know that I was a dancer all of my life. I wouldn't call myself a ballerina, but definately a dancer. I was a dance major in college and got a Master's in Dance from BYU. I used to teach at BYU and I teach an Irish dance class in Waukee now. (Try to imagine my big prego self dancing!Crazy, but true!). I bring this up because, like I said, most of my friends probably don't know this, but it was all I did for a long time in my life! I met Aaron after I graduated from BYU, so he has never really seen me dance either. It is kind of weird that such a huge part of my life is just really my past now! I guess I was feeling a little nostalgic when I got Hallie's first dance pictures the other day. I was flooded with memories of my dancing days and I am excited to see if she will love it like I did! I love my role as wife and mom now and I would not trade it, but sometimes I miss touring and doing shows and the music and really dancing! Thanks for letting me indulge! And- Hallie is an elephant in this picture, just in case you couldn't tell!
