Today is the day Emily has been waiting for. She has wanted to go to the sixth grade Valentine's Dance for a few years now and the day finally arrived.
For P.E. the sixth graders practiced several dances for this special day. It was quite impressive. Emily did very well. Her first couple dances were done very seriously with no trace of a smile.
After a while she began to relax and smile. She was excellent! She did the Waltz, the Cha Cha, the Swing, Electric Slide, Slap Leather, and a few more.
The boys and girls took turns asking each other to dance. I even noticed a boy "cutting in" while Emily was dancing with someone else.
Emily let loose and did some fun freestyle dancing!
Emily had fun dancing with her friends too!
Emily won the award for the best Electric Slide. Joseph won that same award at his sixth grade Valentine's Dance. He said that they have the butt for it. They must have their dad's behind.
When we got home, Emily's room had been "heart attacked". She was so thrilled. It was something she really needed. A girl from Y.W. did this for her. That kindness just warms my heart. Emily doesn't want to take anything down. It made her feel so special. Thank you for making my baby girl feel so loved on this day about love. She has had a wonderful day and I love watching my girl smile and shine!
