This month Lyla finished up her 4th year of dance.

That sounds funny, considering she is only 5 years old, but she started when she was just 18 months.

Eric and I had signed her up for the dance class because her session was about to end at Gymboree and we still wanted her to be "social" with other children. When she started ballet, she had only been walking for 3 months! She cried the first couple of weeks we took her.
Ms. Nicolle would pull her in the class, give us a wave, and closed the door.

Lyla has come a long way in the short amount of time since she started.

She takes her classes seriously. She tries her best. She is a good listener. She is an awesome friend. She is brave.
 She loves to dance.
