Steam Trains and Ballet for Boys

The magnificent steam train

Salem dwarfed by the train

Getting ready to leave

On Saturday on our way into Wellington, we arrived at the Paraparaumu Station to be greeted by the sight of a glorious black steam train.  Steam was billowing everywhere and Salem just about had a heart attack when the whistle blew.  One day we will have to go on one of it's day excursions up the line.

The boys ballet class

When in Wellington, instead of going to Salem's usual ballet class, he went to two special boys only ballet classes run by the Young Friends of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.  The tutor, Vivencio Samblaceno Jr, really put the boys through their paces and they all looked tired and extremely sweaty when they had finished.  This class was for boys 9 years and older.  It is great for the boys to all get together as there are not many boy ballet dancers.  Salem had a great time.
