Pride and Joy

Just a quickie. Samia had her first ballet recital today. She was a flower. She was awesome and gorgeous and very proud. Something about watching kids perform - their honesty and fearlessness, (or trepidation depending on the kid). They seem at the same time so vulnerable and so strong. Watching Samia today, I had one of those rare and precious moments where I feel like I was granted a glimpse of who she will be. Maybe it takes looking at your kids as a bit of a spectator every so often rather than a harried immersed mom to see the growth of your children. Maybe I need to get a life.

Here she is waiting for her dance. Sorry for the blur. Clearly I find it very difficult to remember to change the camera focus from manual to automatic.
