The twist

For our February PTA meeting at the school I work at and Hayden attends the 3rd grade performed. Each class did several dances. Haydens class did the twist and the bunny hop. I videoed the twist so here it is. Notice towards the end Haydens stomach starts to hurt him. We also honored our life member for PTA and we choose a lady-Ms. Kitye, who had a granddaughter that used to go to West but has since moved on to intermediate school but Ms. Kitye volunteers every single day from the time the kids get to school until they go home (without taking a lunch break) since her granddaughter was in kindergarten and now she is in 6th grade. She works in the copy room all day long and copies and laminates and whatever the teachers need her to do. So we decided she would be perfect for the life member award plus she was turning 80 just a few days later so we could make it a birthday celebration too! This was all a surprise to her, we told her she needed to come to this PTA meeting to honor a teacher and we needed her help. So she came and along with several other teachers and students went up to the stage to honor the "life member" We all had a line to tell a quality about this life member. She even had a line to say (not knowing that it was her)! She was totally suprised when they announced her name for the life member. It was so cute! After we announced it we crowned her the "Xerox Queen". We had a crown for her and made her a sash. Anna ( one of our teachers aid) made it and I embrodairied "xerox queen" on it. Then we sang dancing queen to her while we circled around her on the stage. The words were changed to xerox queen along with some new lyrics about how she is the best at xeroxing. It was so fun. Hayden joined us up on stage and we have been singing xerox queen for several weeks now!

I can feel for Hayden -- my stomach always hurts after doing the twist. :)
