dancing, hunting puppy dog.


there are four other boys in ballet at his studio and they all camp out for shows in a corner by the boys' bathroom. iggy joined them this time now that he's getting a little old for the girls' dressing rooms. the highlight of my backstage experience was peaking into the boys bathroom to check on the cause of all the giggling. there was iggy brandishing a toilet bowl scrubber, the four seven-year-old boys at his complete mercy.

he danced beautifully, supported by so many loving family members in the audience.
our day's story included thai food, an ice cream parlor, and a lot of waiting.
 meanwhile daddy and the other kiddos attended my sister's graduation party, complete with a cotton candy machine. both stories were lovely.
we weren't sure if iggy would want to continue ballet after this year's end, but here we are and he's more excited about it than ever before.

i'm sort-of thrilled.

Beautiful. The story of how Iggy has grown in dance, and the photo of you and him together. I'm so happy for him!
