The cold continues it relentless thrashing here, and playing outside is only viable for just short bursts, if at all. As I sat curled up in my snow pants (yes, I’m wearing them inside now, thank you very much; they’re quite warm) on the sofa watching Marine Sgt. Elidio Guillen dance with our First Lady, I fast forwarded in my mind, and thought, “would my sons know how to do the box step if one were ever called to serve our country in this way?” Oh, the pressure.
This contemplation led me to one place: You Tube. There, in glorious full color, complete with British accent, were the step-by-step instructions on many important dance steps: including, the Moon Walk. (Where were these gems when I was in college?)
From there, we jumped to the Box Step:
And then, to the steamy Rumba, which definitely warmed things up.
So, now, at least we have this one important life skill down, I will worry a bit less. Now, if I could just find a you tube video that would take care of their piano lessons and fire their teacher!
