    Summer Camp Square Dancing

    We would square dance at the camp I went to... and one summer it was simply pouring down rain.  There was no thunder or lightning, so the director had us out there, dancing through the puddles!  We all laughed ourselves silly, and loved just about every second of it.

    Let's Do It Again!

    I grew up beside six boys... the second youngest was my best friend.  Whenever there was a sun shower he'd be banging at my door telling me it was time. I loved it, we'd dance in the middle of the street and just have so much fun playing!  I'm thinking that next time it rains I...
