Save the Date


Big announcement! We just finished a 6 week course of ballroom lessons. Our teacher invited anyone in our class to be in the dance recital. She only brought it up once and then decided not to push it any farther. I mentioned to Brian that we could probably get some private lessons for little money, maybe even free. So, Brian agreed (Dutch wannabes that as we are) and we are now committed! June 10th - two performances. If you miss it, we'll show you the DVD. In fact, we'll strap you down to a chair and make you watch!
The recital will probably go something like this, 3 year olds tapping in a line, then some 5 year ballerinas with big pink tutus, and then Brian and I tripping over eachother in a waltz. How charming! What I can promise you is that there will be no dirty dancing. And remember, nobody puts baby in the corner.

Is that a Friday or a Saturday? If it's Saturday, I promise to come and be the "mom" in the isle with the video camera. Gary will be the "dad" in the chairs who stands up to take flash photography. It will be our first date as a married couple. Will your teacher be doing the dance in the wing? Congratulations!!

It's a Saturday. But I know you guys will be looking forward to kicking back at home on your first weekend as a married couple. I really don't expect anyone to come, except maybe the in-laws cuz they're not too far away. I think Brian would be mortified if there were a lot of people.

I remember that photo like it was yesterday. There were quite a few butterflies in that original class of yours.
You guys are going to be the hit of the show!

Angie, The picture of you is soooo adorable! You look as if you were taking your dancing very seriously,indeed. I am sure you and Brian will receive a standing ovation. Forget those little kids! Glad you like the yarn. Can a Knitter ever have enough sock yarn? I think not.

Chuck and I will be in Southern Indiana for a wedding that weekend! Bummer....but at least Kim will play the "mom" and you won't have to strap us to chairs to make us watch a video! We once went to a bridal showing in GR to watch Brian swing dance and model.

Ballerina Girl....love it. Can't wait till you have your own ballerina girl!

Hello to Patty Ann here too! Does Angie have you knitting yet?

I don't know if that's first position or your have to pee.
But hello to Patty, yes I have been gently drawn into the knitting addiction. My only problem is sitting too long causes sciatica. I am giving my MIL her zen garden shawl today! Maybe I'll get a digital pic.
