Sometimes It's Worth The Wait!

Since my girls were small, I have wanted to take them to see The Nutcracker Ballet. Each year as Christmas was ending, I realized that once again I had failed to get tickets in a timely manner and would have to put that on my "to do next year" list.

Recently I recieved an email from our homeschool group that we would have the opportunity to attend a school performance in Myrtle Beach at the high school PAC. I signed up right away, not wanting to miss the chance to get our seats. At just $5.00 per ticket I didn't know what level of performance we would see but the girls and I were just excited to see the ballet.

This morning we were up and out the door early, 8:00 am to be early morning for this home educating family! We made a stop at Starbucks for some energy and headed to the high school. Our seats were great, 4th row from the front! The dancers were from the Coastal Youth Ballet Theater and danced beautifully. The music and props were top notch. We enjoyed every minute of the Nutcracker.

Thanks to Natalie for the photos. She forgot to grab her camera on the way out the door this morning, it WAS early!, so she borrowed mine and snapped a few pics for us.

Is the Nutcracker on your Christmas to do list? What is your favorite Christmas play or movie?

Thanks for taking time to drop by, please leave me a comment!
