Annie, this week
Annie's driving me crazy right now, so I have to write a cute post about her, to remember that she drives me delightful sometimes too.
Do you know what the sign for "wind" is? You put your hands and arms out in front of you and swirl them from up to down, like a "curvy road up ahead" road sign.
Annie has definitely taken it to the next level. The other night, we were out playing in the brisk, evening air. Every time there was an extra big gust, Annie would stop what she was doing, scream "WIN!", close her eyes, and swirl and dip her whole body, arms outstretched, for a few lingering moments.
It took me right back to Modern Dance class at BYU-H, when we were vines or seaweed or something (complete with beige-colored unitards with green wiggles drawn up and down. remember coming to see me in THAT performance, friends?) and our first move was to, you guessed it, close our eyes, cross our arms across our body and dip and swirl like we were in a big wind gust.
I looked like a fool, but Annie, she's a natural.
Speaking of Annie, our second speech appointment lady informed us this week that she's moving to greener, less swampy pastures (North Carolina, in this case). Sigh. The idea of setting up with a whole NEW person is daunting. Especially with summer trips on the horizon. Still, if I pull her out for awhile, will I be kicking myself later?
