One of the many perks of living in a small town is that your kids have a lot more opportunities. Part of that is swapping voice lessons for dance lessons :) This is Macy's second year in dance and London's first. Macy likes it, but doesn't really "love" it. London on the other hand loves it and is pretty natural at it. I think next year we will probably try and get Macy into piano lessons and keep London in dance, but we'll see. This year the dance theme was a day in the studio. Loni (the dance teacher) had each class showcase various parts of what goes on in the classroom. They had everything from warm ups, to free dance, to choreographed dance, to the parents picking them up. For a month before the recital Loni had some parents meet one night a week and learn a dance that we all danced to at the recital. I was really nervous to dance on the stage (something I had never done before!) but it wasn't too bad. It was kind of fun! At the end of the dance Kyle came on stage and dumped confetti on all the parents- and boy did that turn into craziness. The kids came on stage after we danced for their bows, but the little kids couldn't help but grab handfuls of the confetti and dumped it on each other. The adults on stage tried to calm the chaos but we didn't do any good at all. There was confetti just about everywhere in the auditorium. It took a good 2 hours with 10-12 people helping to get everything swept up and vacuumed. Good thing the kids enjoyed themselves! Here are our two cuties!
