It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Anyone else here remember doing/learning square dancing during their days in grade school?

Why - oh why - did we learn that?

Seriously... why?

*shudder*

Yeh, I did. Maybe because Hee Haw was a big hit on TV back then???

Oh yeah. I remember.

Yep, I recall that now. Seems like it was 3rd or 4th grade?

I think this was just a way for teachers to get a good laugh at us...

In my NJ school, they had a mandatory Phys. Ed. unit in square dancing... and this was in high school. Ugh.

I square danced with Megan. Wanted to dance with Kristen. Now I know how to dance with Jen.

We never square dance though. I'd say maybe we will at some point, but I know we won't. We have polka-danced though ... which is more fun.

Square dancing... check!

Recorder... check!

Hey, at least we got to play dodge ball and bean kids in the head every day during PE/recess before that was frowned upon in schools.

My daughter just participated in a 6th grade school presentation on music and dance. One of their dances was a square dance.

Of course, here in AZ it is still popular amongst the Sun City crowd.
