Our Own Little Dancing Queen

Ellie has a little dramatic streak in her that keeps her laughing, clapping, singing, and chatting through life. I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised when attending our school's night at Chuck E Cheese, that she shunned all of the rides and games and hung out here at the little dancing floor having a wonderful time dancing and making new friends!

And in a related conversation with Spencer:

Spencer: "Mom! We're starting a break dancing unit in PE class!"

Me: "That sounds....mmmmm....interesting."

Spencer: "And we get to dance with girls."

Me: "Wow! How does that work? Break dancing with partners?", as I sit envisioning two twelve year olds trying to synchronize their "Worms" and back spins.

Spencer: "Did I mention we get to dance with girls and the girl I like is in my class?"

Me: "Gym class sure is interesting in middle school. When I was in school we got to square dance to fiddle music."

Spencer: "Square dance?! Oh yeah! That's what it's called. We're square dancing, not break dancing."

Me: suppressing laughter..."Slight difference there."

Spencer (unfazed): "And the boys and girls get to take turns picking their partners each time. I'm going to pick *******"

Me: "hmmmm...Maybe break dancing doesn't sound so bad after all."

I can just picture your face as you think about them learning to break dance...with partners.

I LOVE it!

Kids crack me up.

He's pretty bold to admit his crush to you.

My kids will tell me, but it is a HUGE secret. They don't even want their Dad to know.

BTW, I am using Photoshop Elements 2 and I really like it. I know there are probably more powerful programs out there, but everything I have wanted to do so far, I can.

I'd love to see some of your layouts. Have you posted them before?

We are dying of laughter! Break dancing with partners was funny in and of itself, but then the break dancing/square dancing confusion? Too funny!
