So it was decided that Craig would go to Sports day and cheer on Chester, and I would go to Ballet and watch Millie's very first show.
I took a half day off of work and as it turned out I was able to come and watch Chester's sports day, I presumed Millie and I would have to leave before it finished, but luckily we were able to stay until the last race. Just! It was a race against time to get to Ballet, but it was worth it! Chester was in the football dribble team race and then the relay race. He did very well in each, with his team winning the relay race. He is a very competitive boy so took the whole afternoon very seriously! It was great to cheer him and his other team mates on, and Millie even got to take part in the toddler race!
So, on to Millie's Ballet. We arrived just in time (with Chester and Craig following 15 minutes later) and I was lucky enough to get a front row seat next to my friend. As it was Millie's first Ballet Recital I had no idea what to expect. It was super cute and all of the children behaved so well! They did a mixture of traditional ballet moves and nursery rhymes. We are not normally allowed to watch them at Ballet lessons, as understandably, it is too distracting for the Children. So it was lovely to be able to see what usually goes on behind closed doors. Miss Tina is so good with them, it's clear she has a lot of patience and knows exactly how to be firm but fun with them!
Apologies for the lack of photos, the ones I took were amazing. But as I am sure you are aware, I really can't put pictures of other people's children on my blog without their consent!
I am super proud of both of my children today, they both did an amazing job. I am also very happy that we all got to see both events.
Have you ever been 'double booked' where your children are concerned? I know that personally I find it very hard to find a balance sometimes!
