Let's go to the hop

On Friday night, Barrett and I went to a sock hop at her school. In preparation for the dance, all the kids learned dance steps in gym class that they could perform at the event. She learned the swim, the twist, the monkey, the hokey pokey and of course, the chicken dance. One day she came home and said that she learned two dances that were way too hard and way too fast -- but she couldn't remember what they were called. After a short description, I came to the conclusion that they were the Macarena and the Hand Jive -- and I gave her a brief presentation of both. She was shocked that that her OLD mom would know how to do these things.

After some practice to the tunes of MTV -- we dolled up in our rolled jeans, high pony tails and scarves and went on our way. We had a hoppin' good time!
