One of our dancing sessions turned into giving "elephant rides" (ouch) and then turned into "tackle Becca."
How cute is Lucy's outfit? I want to dress like her.
We have been able to hang out plenty. I'm usually starved for Lucy time, so it's really cool to get all the time with her in the world. I feel like she's old enough to really know and like me now. It makes me feel really good when she wants me to do things with her--which is all the time. She thinks it's so fun when we do/have/like the same things. I can't believe she's only 2.5 years old--she looks and acts so much older. I love when she asks to sanitize--she is obsessed with hand sanitizer and cleanliness. PROBABLY because they have to be so careful about getting sick because of Danny's chemo and current lack of an immune system. It's just little things that make her seem so old. We do more than sanitize though. We dance a lot, and go to parks, and watch Princess movies, and a ton of other stuff.
Christy and I had an amazing time at the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CONCERT!!!! Seriously, I can't imagine having more fun. We just had so many EMOTIONS. When they were finally coming out on stage, we freaked out. It was totally unreal that we were seeing them in real life. During the best songs, we cried. I kept smacking Christy because I totally couldn't believe it was actually happening! The show was amazing--the dancing is so much more impressive live. Everything is faster and more passionate and AWESOME. I totally never even cared about dancing until Christy got me into this show, and now I'm obsessed! Not with dancing--I guess I only really care about dancing in the context of this show. But still. Christy and I had one pair of binoculars between us (we had good seats, but with binoculars we could observe facial expressions and drips of sweat) which we shared very nicely and with great civility---but in our favorite songs, there was smacking and rapid exchanges. It was such an incredible experience. It's cool because I didn't have to hate any of the really good dancers, because they're not a threat to Jason anymore! I could just enjoy how freakishly good they are. Including Jason, of course. They did dorky introductions to dances and whatnot, so it was really entertaining and funny and we got a feel for their personalities. We were total geeks and bought tshirts--which I TOTALLY do not regret. I love my tshirt!
Tomorrow is going to be a great day. We have a fun morning planned (Danny doesn't have chemo on Fridays so we can all hang out together!) and then in the afternoon Christy and Mom and I are going to see New Moon! We can't help but be excited. I know it will probably be terrible, but it will be terrible in a really fun and entertaining way! I can't wait.
I'm sad to say goodbye to Christy/Lucy/Danny on Saturday, but I'm so excited to go home and see Kyle again. And my friends. And my house. Kyle has been working on projects to surprise me with when I get home, which is fun. I really miss him.
