First Irish Dance class of 2017

I had dance class the day after the 2016 election and Addi, our dance teacher sub and public school teacher, was like, “I have spent the whole day watching grown adults cry.  I am going to enjoy the heck out of dance class today because it will be the highlight of my week.”  So.  Yes.  Sounds like a good way to start the year.

We did receive my favorite presents ever for Christmas from our amazing friends in Alaska: duel-ready lightsabers!   Art & I totally wandered around the house whacking each other for at least a half hour.  Now all we need is a lightsaber dueling dojo and we will be set.
