my lil dancer...

This morning was Tessa's first session of her ballet/tap class.

She was thrilled. Giddy. Excited.

So was I.

We were running late, but after we drove away from home I realized I had forgotten my 50mm lens, my camera still adorned the 300mm from Caleb's bball game.

So we went back for the lens, making us even later, but this was, after all, her FIRST day of dance and it MUST be documented properly!

So we finally get there, buy and put on the outfit, I sit down to watch (with a very squirmy Eden in my arms), turn on my camera and I. forgot. the. memory. card. It was sitting in the card reader at home.

For about 5 seconds I wanted to throw myself on the floor and have a tantrum, I was so diappointed.


But I refrained.

Thankfully Ryan had BEGGED me to take his camera so I could take a small video clip, which I totally forgot to do, but I was able to snap a couple of pics with HIS camera. They are not what I was hoping for, but at least I got something.

I edited them the best I could...(yes, Ryan, I know I'm a picture snob now.)

It was so precious watching her dance, she had no idea what she was doing but she gave it her all.

She is adorable! Atleast you got something--and its better than blurry cell phone pictures! Sometimes I forget my camera and have to take cell phone pix...they dont compare.

They may not have been what you had in mind, but the first photo is really good. I like the composition.

That must be so exciting! I remember taking dance lessons. I loved it.

GASP! You had to use a point and shoot?? LOL Hey, I know that feeling.

She looks adorable and I am glad you got some pics of her first day. At least you will be prepared next time!!

She's so cute. We love dance at our house as well. And you did great for not having your preferred camera. :D
