Last night was dance class. I have to say that I am happy that I've put both kids in dance classes. Buggy isn't old enough for preschool yet and giving her this opportunity to be with other little girls and to do her own thing has been wonderful. Now that she has her own dance bag she is excited to carry her shoes into class. Her teacher laughs and says that Bug and her classmates are like little old women with their bags. They really are and it's really cute!
Boogie really likes it, too. He found out last night he will not be in the end of year recital. I told him that he will stop dance classes at the end of March because then he'll be in t-ball and possibly soccer. He looked at me and said, "When does t-ball end, and when is the recital?" I tell ya, that kid is too smart. He was trying to figure out if he could re-enroll for dance so he could be in the recital.
But we've already decided, "no." One activity at a time. Especially if we might enroll him in Summer swim team for 2011.
Both kids will participate in the December holiday recital. I caught a glimpse of my daughter's dance number for her recital. It is too cute and I can't wait to see the whole thing in a few weeks. I haven't seen Boogie's yet, but I know that he will be just as wonderful.
You can tell that the kids are into dancing. Anytime there is music both kids have started dancing in the middle of the floor. Bug has even started throwing in some of her moves from dance class. I think this is a good outlet for them and I'm happy they are doing it. As far as Boogie being in the only boy in the class, I don't think he's noticed. I've heard a few comments from parents and sibling in the lobby while I wait for him, but I think if it doesn't bother him, then it doesn't bother me. He has fun and loves what he's doing. But he cracks me up because he's already determined an activity schedule for himself: Winter--dance, Spring--t-ball, Summer--swim, Fall--soccer. I just go with it and if we can afford it, then he can do it. I love that he wants to be well-rounded and wants to try different things.
I'll try to post videos of the kids dancing. I just love it!
