Last night was the girls mid-year performance for the various dancing that they do. The excitement had been building up for weeks as we put together the costumes, hairpieces and bits that they needed.
They were begging all morning to put their gear on, especially Ruby as it was her very first time on stage. (Ella's too, but she is learning patience as she gets older)
They were very good though, all having a sleep after lunch as it was going to be a late night for them. (and it was cold, very cold!!!)
In the breaks (there were 3 of them) all the kids were allowed on the stage to do their own thing and try and win spot prizes. Ruby won a packet of pencils.
