Finally...a letter from Emma.

Needless to say this made my day!

Dear Mom, Dad and Finn,

I miss you all so much it's crazy! Ballet ensemble is so cool. We have the best teachers ever. My personal favorite is Tassia Johnson. She is TOTALLY out of whack and is totally BRILLIANT! She doesn't write anything down for combinations or choreography. She makes everything up on the spot. What makes me mad is that we don't have any modern! >:-/ My other teacher, who does all the choreography for the shows, has us do modern before we work though. Shawn Bible, the choreographer, lets us help choreograph the dances! Tassia Johnson teaches us Bach Method and it has a lot of soutenu turns. We don't have Cory or Julie yet, but Julie doesn't leave the dance studio. She just walks around. I do feel like I have improved at ballet a lot. My turnout has improved so much! I am almost to 180 degrees! :o)

It is SOOOO cold here in the mornings, like 30 or 40 degrees, but it is really, really, refreshing! Sade, my counselor, is SO nice. She helps us with everything. Sade has us write compliments for one person in our cabin every day. I'll show you when we get home. Everyone in our cabin is very nice, but you can tell we are WAY younger than everyone else. Most of the other girls are like 15, 16ish. We act a lot younger, but like I said they are very nice.

We all decided to do the talent show for the second session. We are doing our to dance to "Fidelity" by Regina Spektor. We are going to have a bench and everything and we are trying to get someone to video tape it so I can send it to you. It is going really well.

We are about to head over to see the opera! Yah! There is something to do here every night. Oh and thank you for the care package. It was very sweet of you. Thank you. I am so tired that it's crazy! They work us very hard. Sorry it took so long to write back! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you all so much. Miss U, Love U, Wanna be with U.


P.S. I love you Finn. Hope you had fun at Grandma and Papa's house!

P.P.S. Say hey to Java, Lucy, and Jordan for me!

P.P.P.S. The opera was not very good. I really don't like opera.
