Last Friday night after a long week of work Josh and I got all dressed up for the first ever 7th and 8th grade dance at ACS. We were asked to dress up in something fun and be there to dance with and encourage those students who were a little hesitant to dance. Well, they really didn't need any encouragement to get up and dance, literally everyone was up and dancing most of the night. Actually what they were doing most of the night was more like jumping up and down with a little dancing mixed in here and there. We have been to lots of dances over the years and never have we seen so much jumping. I have seen jumping like this at concerts before but not at dances. It was pretty funny. These kids LOVE "Mr. A" and I have gotten to know them a little bit this year as well so they actually wanted us to get out there and dance with them. We did the tiny bit of swing dancing that we know and suddenly they were all were circled around us taking pictures and cheering us on. They loved it, none of them were actually dancing together as couples so I think they were some what impressed or maybe confused as to what we were doing, I don't know... Anyway, we had a lot of fun and the kids did too.
You know you are at a Jr. High dance when... there's a candy table fully stocked with Gummy Worms, Bubble Gum and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
