My friend Joy couldn't make it this week, but hopefully she will another time. Alyssa and Lucas came out while we were dancing to Timber, so Luke could dance, and stayed out dancing the rest of the class. It was very cute. I took a video, of course ;)
I have to tell you, if it weren't for this blog, I might have skipped Zumba tonight. I was SO tired. Lucas has been staying up very late this entire week, and I'm drained. But, I sucked it up and went anyway. I'm so glad that I did! I left class feeling much better than I did when I came. When we got home Matthew said "Mom, I'm really feeling like I love life right now." If you know my son, you know that this is HUGE. For several years he has been a mopey kid, who frequently said that he hated his life. He hasn't said that at all lately, and tells me, often, how happy he is. It thrills me to no end, and reminds me why I am doing this.
We also did our challenges. We both managed to stay up the entire 2 minutes of the plank. Not easily, but we did it. Now here are some pictures from class today, and one from a parade over the summer.
