The Cincinnati Kinderballet presented "Thumbelina" Saturday at the Hoosier Theater. They had good attendance and it was beautiful. The costumes were beautiful, all hand made. They put a lot of time and work into them. Nadine Swift's sister, Debbie Bentle, of Lawrenceburg was there. Her lovely daughter Jamie was in the show and was great in spite of a leg injury earlier. I had a nice visit with them. Paul and Amy Bovard's daughter Jena was also in the show and lovely as well. I didn't know her or the others. There was a pretty little ballerina girl about four years old who was so good and everyone enjoyed her. They were going to Rising Sun for an afternoon performance.
We met a lovely couple at the ballet from Wales. They had come for the Kentucky Derby and spent a few days at Belterra and enjoyed Vevay and the ballet.
