Kev and I didn't tell her we'd invited her Uncle Seth, just in case he had something come up and he wasn't able to make it. I'm so glad he gave us his Saturday morning because she thought it was wonderful when he surprised her and showed up to drive to the recital with us. And he brought donuts she was psyched to eat afterward. What dancer wouldn't love that?

Mostly, I think Aspen is really glad she can wear her recital costume whenever she wants now. She still wants it to stay perfect, though, and she takes it off completely whenever she needs to eat or go to the bathroom. But at least she can do it herself so I don't have to un/dress her a million times a day!
I am so happy that Aspen had such a wonderful experience this year with dance, and I'm glad Miss E is holding classes again in the fall. I'm also really relieved I got all my crying out of the way before the recital even started. I just got so emotional thinking about how hard Aspen had worked all year to prepare for this, and now it was finally happening. Plus, she looked so cute I could hardly stand it. So I had to have a little cry. Thankfully I kept my eyes dry during her performances so I didn't miss a thing!
