Annika Movin' & Groovin'

Tonight Colb & I took Annika to her first dance class. At 2 years old, she is slightly young, but Ariana's dance teacher wanted us to try... so we did. When the class first started, they practiced some basic tap steps in front of the big mirror. The dance teacher and a couple of helpers do the the simple steps in front of the class and then the children repeat. Annika stood completely motionless as Colby & I stared in wonder at what she was doing. If we were at home she'd be mimicking Ariana at every step. What was she doing?

We caught her eye and she came running over to us. Colb said something to the effect of "Sweetie, you need to follow the teachers steps & dance like the other kids."

She leaned in and whispered, "But, Dad, there's no music playing."

Well, of course, at our house we always dance to music and to a 2 year old it must seem silly to just stand there doing dance steps without the music!

So freakin' cute!!!!!
