We went out to dinner tonight, and during the looooong wait for food (it was very busy on Friday night, go figure!), John asked William what he did today in school. Turns out that gym teachers everywhere do a square dancing unit in January - I remember doing it in the middle of winter when I was in school.
Today, William said, they learned to "alabama left". That would be "allemande" to those of you who remember your own square dancing days. He even demonstrated, with glasses on the table, exactly what an "allemande left" and a "do-si-do" are. And it was clear that he had paid attention and actually enjoyed square dancing. Sigh....I wish I thought it would last. You know there will come a time when square dancing isn't "cool" and therefore he'll decide he doesn't like it.
But until then, perhaps I'll get him to teach me how to alabama left again.
