This short video is from last weeks dance class and is the perfect representation of who Cam is. They were instructed to walk on their tip toes across the room with the wand held above their heads with both hands. I'm a fan of her improvisational version.
After much consideration, Kysa has decided to allow Cam to ride the bus to school and back each day. Even with my help two days a week, having to maneuver two small boys in and out of the car is a struggle, and with the coming winter, even more so. She told me this morning that if all goes well, she will begin riding the bus next week. I completely understand her reasoning and support her 100%, but I'm sure going to miss our twice weekly car talks. This being the case, this may be my last installment of Car Talk with Cambria.
Nana: Dance class tonight!!
Cambria: Yup. Five hours of tap and then five hours of ballet and then five hours of tumbling.
Nana: Wow. Uh...it's really 20 minutes of tap, 20 minutes of ballet, and 20 minutes of tumbling.
Cambria: Oh. That did seem like a lot.
Nana: I hope you get to tumble on the trampoline thingy.
(There is a long trampoline thing that almost looks like a moving walkway that they do drills on to help them learn to flip, etc.)
Cambria: Yes. Did you see those girls last week?
(Last week there was a small class using the whatever it's called to do really advanced flips and tumbling runs.)
Nana: They were amazing!
Cambria: I was impressed! They could flip so high!
Nana: It was pretty cool.
Cambria: Impressive. (When she learns a new word she like to use it repeatedly and correctly. I always underestimate her I was going to say it was impressive, but thought better of it.) They must practice a lot.
Nana: Agreed. Papa might get to come tonight.
Cambria: WHAT?! To dance?
Cambria: And then dinner afterward with Steve and Trina? Will Everett be there? (Everett is Steve and Trina's grandson)
Nana: Yes and no, Everett won't be there.
Cambria: Oh, too bad, but still a really great night.
Being the Nana, I realize that I could be a little biased, but I find this child to be extraordinary. She is fast, clever and bright as any star. The opportunity to be a part of her early school experience has been an incredible blessing to me. We will find other ways to have time together, but these little comings and goings have been a special bonding time for she and I. I can't thank Kysa and Josh enough for letting me be involved in this way. I wish I could do it for all of the grand babies.
P.S. It's snowing!
