However, her and her best friend Mikayla still wanted to do something. So after looking around they decided on dance. They got a bit lucky as the dance studio we decided on also offered a cheer type class – so they weren’t missing out really. They’d still learn fancy tricks, but it’d be with a nicer person and it wouldn’t take up so much of their lives.
So they took a Jazz dance class as well as the cheer/tumbling class. They enjoyed it a lot and were super excited for their recital. I was super excited that the recital was close by and the costume prices weren’t outrageous.
Thankfully, I was on top of my game and remembered to tell Eric’s mom when the recital was. She decided to make a day of it and came to the boys games in the morning and then hung around and came to the recital that night. She was a lifesaver. Eric had to work at the game store that night and had to leave the recital early, which would’ve left me alone with the 5 other kids, but with Eric’s mom around – it was so much easier.
