8 years and Grade 5

C came out of class with a shining pin clipped on her chest. She received her certificate for the Grade 5 ballet examination that she took in April earlier in the year.  :)

I asked if she was happy and she said she had worked hard for it and so she was. I am more pleased that she persevered; the double and some times even triple weekly sessions. It wasn't just her- it was getting back from work on time to take her for her classes in the evenings. It was also the sacrifice of some weekends for her practice. And for C, the late nights. Monday evenings were awful as it would be 10 pm when we got home. Did she complain, of course she did but each time she did, she also added that she knew she was working for something she wanted. She had wanted to put dance on hold as school work was getting more intense but each time, she pressed on.

Attending such enrichment classes is tiring and time-consuming but it also builds character in C and as long as she enjoys doing what she does, we will also press on.
