Recently I had the great pleasure of watching and capturing my granddaughters perform at the dress rehearsal for Chamberlain School of the Arts' spring recital. I was teary when I snapped this of sweet Sasha (10). Her passion for ballet continues to grow. This summer she will take intensive classes at Chamberlain.

    Thanks everyone. Each time I watch Sasha dance she takes my breath away. She certainly doesn't get her gracefulness and dance talent from me. LOL. I have trouble walking in a pair of heels. Andrea, at times she does look like the late Audrey Hepburn as a child.
