Shoulda Taken the Camera
Tonight, the kids and I went to a Valentine's dance at church. It was a lot of fun. At first the kids didn't know what to do. Andrew said he was too shy to dance. Emmy would only hang on to me. Slowly they started to feel more comfortable. Andrew mostly ran around and played with a paper airplane, but he did dance to a few songs. Then some slow song came on and he asked the little girl sitting next to me if she wanted to dance. She said no, which surprised me. I told Andrew I would dance with him and so we did, but very soon the little girl had this look of regret on her face. I asked did she want to dance now and she did. I helped them get there hands into the right positions and they were very cute to watch. Emmy had a lot of fun dancing with an older girl she's friends with, but near the end she danced with a little boy her age. They were so cute together. Of course the room was dim, so my phone didn't take good pictures. I hadn't even thought to take a camera. My friend had planned to bring hers, but she also forgot. I guess we'll just have the memories. So, by the time we left Andrew was engaged to a little girl he's friends with. Not the same girl he danced with, but a different girl. Emmy was very excited that Andrew got engaged.
