Daddy Daughter Dance

I got the pleasure of attending my first Daddy Daughter dance.  The Girl was very excited as was I.

She wore her fancy dress and I was dress in my best tie.  It was at the school and when we arrived there was a path of chalk drawn hearts leading to the door.  Granted it was in the gym which was nicely decorated, she immediately saw her friends and took off running around the gym.  That is one thing my kids do in any gym is run.  I believe it is a standard feature in my children.

I did get into a bit of trouble as I didn't get her a wrist corsage.  It was about 50/50 on corsages, but she was a little mad.  She got over it quickly when we found the appetizer table.

Granted this was the entire school dinner wasn't served until 6:30 and we were hungry since the Girl usually eats at 5:00pm.  Dinner was good and it was off to dance.

Everyone knows I have smooth moves like a Rhino.  Fortunately for me the Girl thought I was great as her dancing mostly consists of swaying, bouncing and jumping.  After many songs of jumping and bouncing they finally played a good Daddy Daughter song.  I picked up my Itty Bitty and we danced together.

After that one song she was done with me for a bit and went running and dancing around with her friends.  I was able to get back in the fray a bit later as the Chicken Dance came on.  Lets just say I tore it up and if there was a Daddy trophy for best chicken dance it would be on my shelf next to my golf trophy.

Soon she was very tired and it was time to go, after all she is still 4 and it was at least an hour past her bedtime.

It was a great night for her and I.

More Delays

This wasn't an awful week, just busy and a little crazy.  A couple of delays for school which as you may know in our house are not the greatest things especially on my day off.  In that case I don't get to do as much and have to make sure to get other things done.  It is just under the level of running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

There are plans to start hitting the Y on my day off but thus far we have had delays on those days.  Maybe I will just start getting heavier items at the grocery store and not using a cart.

The kids have been doing well even though it has been indoor recess at school.  These kids need to get outdoors, there is something about fresh air that helps them get some energy out and relax a bit.

The Girl is in a cheerleading program at school.  She loves it and does quite well and got to cheer at her first pep rally in front of the whole student body.  She did great and was very excited.

The Boy has been wishing for more snow so we can do some more sledding.  Granted the last time I think I was up and down the hill more than the kids.  There is nothing like flying uncontrollable down a hill towards a creek or a bunch of trees.
