the recital...

tonight was Tessa's dance recital...

she's been taking ballet and tap since january... (but can't wait for soccer to start in August!)

they danced to lisa loeb's version of twinkle twinkle little star (now playing), which is such a cute song...

she looks so serious as she keeps her eyes on the teacher hiding behind the curtain showing them what to do...!
