Talent Show- and a little Dancy dance
We had our ward talent show and Jensen played the piano. Two hands! He is such a big kid! I tried to get a picture of him after be played, but he passed on his bow and bolted back to his chair. I am one proud momma of skills. When I was his age I would have never played a piano solo in front of my ward. He about melted my heart when he asked me: "Mom, do you think I knocked her socks off?" He was referring to his piano teacher- to which I replied, "of course you did." Jense thrives on praise. If only my praise was good enough to get him to practice the songs he doesn't know by heart.
John and I also got to perform at the talent show. It was a practice run for a performance we were asked to do for a youth dance. We did a swing performance at a quad stake dance. It was a lot of fun and I wish that John and I could spend more time brushing up on our skills. If you're thinking that we are some kind of pro's... think again. The only reason we were asked is because we taught swing dancing for the Maple Valley stake a couple years ago. After our performance, we taught some basics to some of the couples. Spending an evening with the youth was quite refreshing. I never went to a church formal- I was shocked at the extent of the decorations/food/and themed details.
Did any one catch all the Lindy Hop on Dancing with the stars?? I am so thrilled they finally incorporated some LH. The Lindy hop is our specialty-again, we're not that good! :-) I haven't always been a fan of Dancing with the Stars because I got tired of the same ol ballroom. Ok, so I am watching it because the people from SYTYCD are cropping up in the show. My favorite star is Ty Murray. Could he possibly be any more endearing? Here is what he pulled off tonight....
