Zumba Me!

In case you didn't already know - I finally became a Zumba instructor! I got licensed at the beginning of April and have been teaching ever since. :)

This past couple of months has been a whirlwind for me. I decided I wanted to teach Zumba in January and had a hard time getting into a training because they were sold out. So, I finally made it to the one in April and 5 days later had a job interview to teach my first hour-long class at Anytime Fitness. Lo and behold, I got the job and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! I teach every Tuesday and Thursday evening and in my "off" time I work non-stop on memorizing music and working on new dances. I wish I would have found it years ago, but I'm happy to be doing it now!!

It's fun to see the kids embrace what I'm doing too. As I practice my dances in the kitchen, they join in and work on my dances with me. Now they all have their favorite songs and they take turns picking songs on my iPod when we are in the car.

PS - I would LOVE to have friends come and join my class. Let me know if you want to come and I'll give you the details!

Quick Family Home Evening Activity

We were at a loss for something fun after we finished our lesson for Family Home Evening, so out came the eyeliner and little clothes!

The kids took turn singing the primary songs in their new characters and had a blast! 

Samantha is on the left and Athena is on the right.

The funniest part to me is all the extra faces they make with their chins! Nathan was laughing so hard he could hardly sit up!

After Athena and Samantha had a turn, Nathan and Alex had to give it a try. This is Nathan. :)

We tried to give Alexandra's character some hair, but she ended up looking like a balding woman who couldn't keep her gangly long hair out of her face.

Overall it provided the much-needed entertainment for the evening and gave us all a good laugh!
