Tug o' war!
All of us unanimously agree that we will have to go to the picnic again next year. It really is too bad that it is only once a year. :0( The great thing, though, is that there is a dance this Saturday hosted by one of the homeschool families where we will be able to see our new friends again. Of course, the thought of a dance brought nothing but groans from my brothers and I at first, but it turns out that the dancing will be what is called folk dancing, which looks really fun. Our family's knowledge of dancing includes little more than the "chicken dance" (and perhaps some crazy moves to the movie Madagascar's song "I like to move it, move it"), so we have been learning several of the folk dances. Below are links to a couple videos of the dances we have learned so far.
