Mortgage and Lending with WR Starkey Mortgage



Last Sunday the family went to the Pikes Peak Center to enjoy the perrennial seasonal favorite, THE NUTCRACKER BALLET. The oldest granddaughter was chosen to be one of the party girls in the opening scenes of the ballet this year.

Each year the San Diego Ballet Troupe comes to Colorado Springs for a weekend of shows. In addition to the professional troupe, a number of young ballerina hopefuls from local clubs and ballet schools are chosen to play roles along side their professional  counterparts. It seems that she has worked her way up through the small bit parts to become a little more prominent each year. Now, if she can just play the role of Clara, all will be ok in her world.

The music was provided by the Colorado Springs Symphony which always does a great job playing the familiar orchestral pieces. The hours that go into the children's costumes and practices represent a tremendous commitment on the parents and children. In the end, though, it is worth the time and effort for these youngsters to get a taste of a real stage performance.

After the performance, which the 4 and 6 year old grandsons were only to glad to see end, we packed everyone up, and headed to the Red Lobster for a relaxing Sunday dinner. This would be the finish for what turned out to be a very hectic Thanksginving weekend. It was also a terrific way to start the Christmas season off with a bang. But, if truth be known, I was kind of glad to see the weekend over and Monday come. Then, I could go to work and get the peace and quiet I thought was going to be mine.

This is lovely.  Every little girl wants to play Clara, but the fact that your granddaughter was in this fabulous production was, I am sure, very exciting.  I love the ballet and the "Nutcracker" is a great introduction to it for children. 

I wish you a happy holiday season.

Cherise, they are a lot of fun as they're growing up.

Claudette, I think you are correct about little ballerina's dreams. I do enjoy classical music which also makes it fun. It is good for the children to be around this too, as it gives a diffeent perspective fcr them. Thank you for the kind widhes and the same to both you and Cherise.
