Claire learned to square dance at school, and she’s been talking about it for several months now. When she invited me to see their program last Friday, I just had to go. And it was just as awesome as Claire said it would be.
They performed four square dances, and I was pretty impressed at how well they did. Although, there was one time when it was obvious that someone in Claire’s set didn’t quite follow the steps. A short moment of chaos followed and Claire expressed her dismay (and disgust).
Here they are rolling the barrel.
And doing the Virginia Reel.
The teachers then told the kids to go and pick one of their parents to join them in the Virginia Reel. Claire picked her dad.
Here’s Claire with her parents after the performance.
Then we sent Claire off to class, and I joined Matt and Izzy for brunch at the Blue Plate Diner. That’s the benefit of being an adult. Liam is just a little guy, though, so he got to join us, too.
(I’m so grateful that my work understands the importance of an aunt attending her niece’s school program. Not every place would.)
