hip hop in the house.

The other night, dinner was done early and everyone had showered and was ready for bed. Parker and Ethan were entertaining us with their new breakdance moves. The two of them are really into breakdancing and christian rap all of a sudden. It reminded me of when I was a little girl watching my brother do his own really cool moves, so I began looking up b-boy and hip-hop instructional videos on the computer. After I found a few cool videos, I called the family over to check them out hoping the boys could learn some helpful tips. After watching and reviewing about 5 unbelievable moves, the whole family {including daddy} tried to put into practice what they saw.

It was a hoot. I tried also, but my body just ain't what it use to be. {After seven children, I've finally realized that I'm not capable of the same bodily contortions I did as a 17 year old high school cheerleader}.

Now Parker wants to work on a breakdance show to perform at his birthday party {um...2 months away}. I guess the family that breakdances together stays together.
At the very least, it has a lot of fun together.

Since I did not homeschool my daughter, I really do not know that much about it. I'm looking for a few experts (I already know you are one because I follow your blog and love your redheaded baby!) to discuss homeschooling in my new forum BLOGNTWEET at

I would greatly appreciate your input. The link to the homeschooling page is

If you do this for me, let me THANK YOU ahead of time!

So funny, a pastor's family breakdancing! I can say that because we too are a pastor's family. I love the pictures. What great memories.
