Beautiful Art or Torture?

Yesterday, the Peterson Clan plus our adopted family (Becky & Rob) trekked off to see Rebecka's dance recital. Rebecka forewarned us that the show might run a bit long, but we were promised ice cream afterward as a reward.

Little did we know, the recital took over 3 hours! Most of the dances were quite excellent, but I figured out there is an awkward stage in which dancers are too old to be cute and too young to be good. Only the parents of these children could be proud of them... the rest of us saw their true talent -- none.

On the other hand, Rebecka's dance was beautiful! I relish the opportunity to see my wife dance.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

P.s. We will try to get a video posted of the dress rehearsal, but for now, here's a picture from after the recital. We look happy in the photo, but don't be fooled. Post traumatic stress takes time to fully develop. I am sure Becky will be dreaming of little girls dancing to Boom Boom Pow for weeks.
