For the second post in a row, I have photos and not much text. I've somehow suddenly become a woman of few words and many pictures.

I spent today helping out at a regional folk dancing festival that was held for the older primary school students.
I didn't dance or sing...I was the photographer for our group

The picture above is my favorite. The flying feet and swinging hair really give a feeling for how the day went - fast and fun. And doesn't the little girl on the left look completely joyous?

The children practised for months to get ready for this. They learned 10 different dances from Brittany( Bretagne) , as well as several songs.
The twins loved it all and practised hard. They were SO ready to perform! It was all very cute and lots of fun.
(The band was great, too. It was made up of four elementary school teachers that perform in the region on the weekends. They were really good!)

You guys do SO much...was this through the local school?

I know what you mean! Never a dull microsecond around here!

Yes, it was a thing that the local schools organized. teachers that wanted to participate went to a workshop to learn the songs and dances. Then they had a few months to teach the kids everything. It turned out to be fun, though it was sometimes hard to get the boys and girls to touch each other!

I'm so glad you are up to all these wonderful hijinks (say that sentence back with multiple inflections, about five different ways)!!
