The results are in...

...and they are just a little different than Emma expected.
After auditioning for a merit scholarship to Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp a couple of weeks ago, Emma received a letter in the mail this week indicating she had been invited to join the Blue Lake Ballet Ensemble. The camp only accepts 35 dancers into the ensemble program and dancers stay for four weeks. Dancers receive five hours of daily instruction while working toward a large performance. This came as a surprise to all of us, as typical ensemble dancers are in high school. Emma weighed all of her summer options and after making a lengthy pro and con list decided to accept Blue Lake's offer to be a member of the Ballet ensemble. She will be leaving us in late June and return at the end of July...gulp. She is thrilled to death that a couple of her closest friends were accepted as well!
This is shaping up to be quite a spectacular summer for Emma.
We are so proud of her that we are all willing to miss her like crazy.
She is anxious to have this once in a lifetime experience!
Merde Emma Grace!

That's amazing! Leif was gushing about her talent the other day that I mentioned that I saw pics in the blog. It was fun to see him be excited about a world he's still learning a lot about. He's a very proud papa (as you are too!). Congrats to the whole family! Emma is clearly talented but she wouldn't have the incredible poise and courage to take on this adventure if it weren't for all of you.
