On Friday, June 7, 2013, J-man had his very first dance…err social. It was just for the 5th graders and it was only from 6-8pm, but boy o boy you would have thought it was prom! J-man and his best friend, Caleb were so excited about this dance, and rightly so. The start of dances is a rite of passage for youngins. I remember my first dance, the butterflies I had and the high hopes of dancing with my little crush. But, I will admit, I was far less cool than this little dude. J-man has a confidence and sense of style that I lacked until much older. Heck, who am I kidding? I’ve never been cool and never will be and that perfectly fine by me because I’m happy and quite content with the woman I’ve become, but I digress.
Back to cute, super cool, little 5th graders...
He was a little nervous that's for sure, but he was super cool about it. He asked me how to slow dance because he didn't know where to put his hands. Hehe! I love him! Hubby and I showed him how to slow dance...the PG version of course. He's used to watching me dance, so the poor kiddo was probably really intimidated when he heard "dance." The sense of relief on his face when he saw hubby and I demonstrate was adorable! My dad told me he probably thought he was super cool because he learned to dance from a pro. In his mind I'm a pro. In reality, I am far from a professional dancer.
I adore the pictures above! Thank heavens he humored me and let me take tons of pictures! This was a super memorable moment!

Ok, I'm done torturing the kiddo. It was getting close to 5:45 i.e. the time he was supposed to walk to his best friend's house. We all headed down, saw the boys in all their handsome, super cool guyness, and told them to have a blast.
Hubby and I went on a little dinner date and then we headed to the school to pick up the boys! They sprinted out to us covered in sweat with huge smiles and tons of stories!! It was priceless! Both boys asked their little ladies to dance! Jared asked Lena! Caleb asked Maria! Brave little buggers! The both screamed in really hyper pre-puberty voices that it was the most fun they have ever had! Snap! I'd call that a successful first dance!
To cap the night off, they had a sleepover!
