We love Dance Festival.
Every year, each class learns and practices a dance. Then sometime during the last week of school One Billion Parents show up an hour early (to get a good view), set up their lawn chairs and then either burn in the sun or freeze in the rain while the children are in the school getting organized to come out and perform. Then they come out with their chairs and set them up along the sides of the dance stage performance area. Then they start dancing.
It is fun... And funny... And the best part about it is that the kids love it! Well, most of the kids love it and the ones that don't show it. And they are distracting. And I wonder why they don't understand that they look more ridiculous and draw more attention to themselves when they show their displeasure than they would if they just let go, embraced the situation and danced with all their might.
That is something we have never had to worry about where Sam is concerned.
