Just Dance

We're in the throes of back-to-school and we're all feeling it. There are forms to be filled out and homework to be done and permission slips to sign. Piano lessons have started, as have boys' and girls' clubs. There are school lunches to pack and parent lunches to pack and dinner meals to plan and prepare for.

We're running at full speed in my house.


One thing that we like to do as a family to burn off energy is dance. There are games with songs and steps, which we love, but there is something we love even more.

I will put on a playlist of our favorite songs and we will dance in the kitchen. There are fists thrown in the air and booties shaking (hard) and many people jumping. There is also a whole lot of laughter.

Stress can build, even in kids, but we like to diffuse it for all of us with dancing, laughter, and the occasional well-placed fart.

Do you have dance parties with your family? What do you do to de-stress?

The two youngest and I love to just dance sometimes to burn off energy or to be silly. It's a lot of fun and I am sure we all look silly but on those days where we can't get out because of the weather it helps them get the activity levels they need.

Well, considering my ailing FIL inhabits the living room most of the time, we don't have dance parties. But we do have that game for the Wii.

Haha, no we don't.
We just relax and chat, perhaps a walk

We do like to dance sometimes.  We also like to ride our horses to de-stress.
