27 Days To Go!

Hi again everyone! It is only 27 days until the concert! YAY!

I am so proud that I have been so efficient at updating my blog recently. I think that I was just getting so bored of the old background to my blog, that I couldn't stand looking at it.
But, now with it's new background, I love blogging!

Anyway, as I sit here at the computer, eating my 99% fruit raspberry and watermelon icy pole, and listening to the rain trickling down the gutters, I will tell you all about last week at ballet.

Well, on Monday we worked on "Peter and the Wolf." My dance is very fast, but I think that I am kind of starting to get the hang of it.
Then we worked on our normal syllabus. I sucked at pirouettes.

With the primary and grade 2 classes on Monday, my Teacher and I split the students up into two groups. I took one group and my teacher took the other. About 95% of the kids were as crazy as ever.
In my class, I did a small pirouette on pointe. I was SO happy!

Friday was a good workout. My pirouettes were fairly good, I even managed to do an almost perfect double one. I was pretty proud of myself.

In pointe, I didn't realise until I took my pointe shoes off, but the blister on the side of my toe had started bleeding again. Sigh! I wish it would just disappear.
I don't mind the other ones, but this one is just so visible and uncomfortable. Ooh well, that's ballerina's feet, I guess!

On Saturday, we had a High Tea to raise funds for the kids clubs for the slum kids in India. My ballet teacher came to that.
At the end of it, she gave me a beautiful black long sleeved leotard to try on. She was going through some of her stuff and found it. It didn't fit her anymore, so she wondered if I would like it.

That night when I tried it on, I was really disappointed because it was too smalle for me. Just a little bit, but still too small. Sigh

Anyway, I will return it to her today. Perhaps some other lucky student will be able to wear it!

Hey I just looked at the whole blog and you've done sooooooooooooo well at keeping it up to date. I can't even comment up to date. YOU R TALLENTED. U ROCK.

Hi Lauren,

What I do to become a follower is just click on the thing that says "follow" and follow what it says. I can't remember if I had to give my password or not. I don't think that you can only follow if you have got a blog, because Cassie and Trish don't have blogs.

How exciting you have found a kitten. Unfortunatly today is the day we have to put down Lisa. I will talk more about that in an e-mail.

With the talented thing - yeah, I am not too sure about that! ha ha. I found it really hard, and after all, Kylie actually set up my blog for me. I just watched! And with the background, well, I had a lot of trouble with that.

Sometimes I am good with keeping up to date, but sometimes not. ha ha

Much Love, Izi xoxoxo

Actually, ask Cassie. She knows!

I mean, about the follower thing.

Heidi-Mari said...

WOW Izi!
You must be very exited!
I can't wait to see a picture of you and you dress.
Enjoy it, it's only once a year!

Have a blessed dancing week!
P.S. Thank you for welcoming me as a follower
