My baby has been taking ballroom dance in gym, and tonight was the city-wide showcase at the high school gym. Be still my heart! (I turned down work for this!)
2019-05-21 Mad Hot Cambridge Ballroom Showcase [2:26]:
Of Note: At Tobin, instead of pairing up Boy-Girl, they pair up by “Right Foot Starter” or “Left Foot Starter.” I noticed my son *not* complaining about Ballroom Dance while they were studying it. I also noticed how he told me one time that he figured out by choosing to be a Right Foot Starter, he never has to get paired with a GIRL. I find it amusing how satisfied he was with this “hack,” lol. And how nonplussed he was to be paired up with his Gym Teacher for the Showcase.
Also of Note: Omg my baby’s legs are like stilts, especially when he tucks his shirt all the way in and cinches his belt up all the way.
More Importantly: Our principal Jaime -my hero- joining the kids for a celebratory “Cotton Eyed Joe” in the end. Her incredible spirit is so 100% lovely, loving and infectious it brings me to tears. (And he will be surpassing her in height *any* day now, lol.)
Final Note: Gavin was so affectionate and happy to have us there. Afterwards he said, “Thank you” to me and daddy for coming “and supporting me.”
Be still my heart again.
PS: Thank goodness I at least got the video made before my phone deleted all the photos!
Thank you for this! I felt like was there! Good on you, Gavin. Well done!
