The young lady pictured above is ready to dance. My granddaughter was three or four years old in the picture and wears one of her costumes for her dancing school recital. I sat through the recitals for my sister, my daughter, and my granddaughter. As a child, I enjoyed my sister's dance recitals, but, as an adult, the recitals with performances by many youngsters seemed endless. My sister was a talented dancer and danced through high school, but my daughter and granddaughter took dance lessons for only a few years. Thank heaven for small mercies.
I'm running out of material for the twelve days of Christmas, with still more days to fill. I should have stuck with the song.
UPDATE: My grandparents had seven children in all, five daughters and two sons.
