Cool Idea!

I must not read any blogs from Seattle, because I didn't hear about Stitch n Pitch, but I think it's a great idea! If the Twins did that, I would so be there - even though they've gone in the tank. Thank goodness football has started!!!

Last night I went out for dinner at Puerta Azul for a little arroz con pollo, which hit the spot! Then we saw this movie:

LOVED this film! So charming and funny and uplifting. It's a documentary about ballroom dancing classes in NYC that end in a city-wide championship. It's sort of similar to "Spellbound" or "Born into Brothels". The dancing is awesome - the kids end up being really good dancers and it looks like so much fun. But the personalities of the children are the attraction. They're all fifth graders, so just entering that time where they are becoming independent of their parents, thinking about what it means to be an adult and the choices they want to make, trying to figure out how to interact with the opposite sex. They're funny and insightful and sometimes heartbreaking. Go see it!
