Granddaughter Charlie demonstrates dance camp skills.
On a recent weekend, Husband Walter and I made a trek for a weekend dose of our Georgia grands. A special treat for me was to attend the closing “demonstration” of six-year-old Charlie’s week of dance camp.
This was a welcomed first. Due to distance and other conflicts we have yet to attend dance programs or recitals of any of our three granddaughters. I am thankful for photos and video, but there is no substitute for in person whether it is dance, spelling bee or sporting competition. I did, however, successfully enlist Baboo to capture images I used in this post.
At the dance camp finale, the fledgling ballerinas had made their own costume accessories for a butterfly ballet they performed for the small but enthusiastic audience of parents, grandparents and siblings. Male siblings in the audience were noticeably less enthusiastic, but they were well behaved, even if there was no mayhem or weaponry involved in the performance.

Our little dancer proudly shows off the butterfly hair clip and wings she painted.
After the program grandsons Luke, left, and Nate pause in the midst of mischief to fulfill Nana’s photo request.
As we waited outside the studio for Charlie and Mom Sarah to join us, the grand moments continued.
Luke is first to check how much taller he measures on the nana-meter.
This Nana finds grandkid humor irresistible.
Hubby and I started the new week back at home, tired but happy after our grandchildren “fix.”
Thanks to my favorite photographer, aka Hubby/Baboo, for photos.
