Well, fall activities were in full color bloom this weekend. Starting with a few firsts, specifically for Youngest. Starting after school Friday, the talk of the class was a middle school dance being hosted by a neighboring high school. "Everyone is going mom!" After a few phone calls from other moms, (there's strength in numbers-we needed a united front...) it was decided our darling daughters could attend, with a few rules.
Can you feel their excitement? I was on the pick up end of the evening, and I had to laugh listening to these girls talk about their night. They had a great time and can't wait for the next "dance." Personally speaking, I can...they're getting so old, too soon. Mercy, it's just the start of the 6th grade.
Youngest said to me after everyone was dropped off, "Mom, it wasn't anything like I thought it would be."
"What did you think it would be like?"
"Well, for one, I was expecting the lights to be on...it was really dark in the gym, they only had the lights from the DJ and a disco ball."
"It was super crowded and super hot, too!"
"Anything else?" I asked.
"Yeah, no one was really dancing, as much as we were just jumping up and down shaking our arms in the air..."
I like the sound of that....
Next up, first volleyball matches of the season.
These little dynamos were on fire! They worked together as a team and showed a lot of spirit. So fun to watch -when everyone's clicking.
Finally, my little cheerleaders came out this weekend for their first sideline performance.
They are in their "warm weather" ensembles. Can't wait to bring out our "vintage" sweaters. These girls have been working so hard on their half time routine, I can't wait for them to break it out at next week's game.
