Big Announcement!

We've (okay, I've) decided to have Louie and Benny join a German dance group.

I'm sure many of you are shaking your heads, wondering what on earth I'm thinking (namely, my brothers). But I think it'll be great for them. And I'll give you my reasons why:
  1. They are relatively young (going on 5 and 4), so they don't know better.
  2. We have German heritage coming at us from all bloodlines, so it's good to keep the traditions going.
  3. I've heard that compared to other heritage dance groups, this is very laid back and can sometimes even be chaotic--perfect for us!
  4. They both can be relatively shy with groups of people, and I think this would be a great way for them to overcome their timidness.
  5. It's a family affair! The practices take place at a local German society and the whole family goes to enjoy the experience. After practices the families hang out, have some good ol' fashioned quality time :)
  6. They get to wear incredibly cute lederhosen--enough reason in itself!
There are a couple spring events, a few summer and one or two in the winter. Most take place at the German society, but they also do shows at festivals and other events around town. If anyone is interested in knowing the schedule, please get in touch with me. It'll be priceless...

Number 6 is compelling, but number 1 is my favorite. And, we definitely need a schedule of appearances.
