I just had a flashback to my days in elementary school, as a student rather than a teacher. You probably aren’t aware that September is International Square Dance Month (and you probably don’t care either…ha!). Learning this reminded me of when square dancing was part of fourth and fifth grade P.E. I loved every part of P.E. except for square dancing. Two reasons: I had to hold hands with a boy. YUCK. The other reason? I was the tallest kid in my class which meant I towered over all the boys. Embarrassing!
A few years back The Mailbox crew had an offsite meeting that included an evening of square dancing. None of us knew what we were doing and we had a blast. The cuer (the lady who was calling the moves) did get a bit perturbed with us though. I guess we laughed more than we listened!
Then there’s a flashback from second grade when I flipped my chair over backward and ended up with the hem of my dress snugly wrapped around my neck. We’ll save that one for another time!
Do ever have flashbacks of your time in elementary school? I hope you’ll share!
