I'm talking actual square dancing, people. With a caller and a big circle and traveling couples, and a promenade the whole SHE-bang. I loved it! The kids loved it! Even The Mr. admitted to a feeling not unlike love about the experience.
So of course the kids enjoyed picking out some cowboy outfits, and we were lucky enough to have a friend with some great items. A quick trip to the Goodwill outfitted me and Cubby got some boots.
By the way, those of you not familiar with Goodwill shopping might want to get aquainted. We found a slew of gymboree shirts for Miss H at $2 each, tap shoes and cowboy boots for dress up for $2.50 . I also scored on piano instruction books at 50 CENTS a piece. (I found 14!! of the speciality books that retail for 6 dollars each, so I now have just about no excuse for not practicing very much anymore.)
The point of the chili dinner and square dancing of course was fellowship with church members and I have to say, objective met! So much fun, and so many faces!!
(you gotta love those little ponies!!)
