Our friend Lindsey just began taking fiddle lessons last week. Luckily for us, her first lesson was right before our community group meeting, so she came home and told us about the lesson and how her teacher had invited her to attend a barn dance that she would be playing at on Sunday night. Ben and I instantly perked up, and told Lindsey and John (her husband) that we wanted would go to the dance with them!!

We showed up in time for the "lesson" before the dance began. It was a good thing that we had a lesson, because the dances were choreographed and somewhat complicated... The "experienced" dancers were glad to help us figure out what we were doing, though.

We had a great time!! It was so fun to learn some of the dances and to talk with the people that do this every week. We may not become regulars at the barn dances, but it was really fun!!
