More insanity

For Dance Festival, the 12 and 13 year old boys are dancing to High School Musical, Get Your Head in the Game.
This is a random sampling of the boys. It is representative of all boys this age. . .


So, it was a really great idea to try to teach them to dance and dribble a basketball at the same time. . .
The boys loved it. Every practice, basketballs were thrown, flung, kicked, and lobbed all directions, and women kept yelling, "Boys, Hold your balls!" None of the boys ever laughed at that. . .
And as it turns out, when you combine a google of boys with a google of basketballs, none of the boys hold their balls at all. Rather, they lob them quite firmly at other boys' faces. And, well, balls.

But thankfully, the Dance Festival coordinators took into account how immature a horde of 12 and 13 year old boys can be and gave them costumes that can't be used against them by the other boys. . .

Oh wait. My mistake. They all have elastic waisted shorts on. In that case, hold your balls and let the depantsing begin. . .

I needed a good laugh.

I just knew that I could count on you to give us the more hilarious sides of dance festival. That got a belly laugh out of me. You've gotta love those Deacons!

Hopefully, the boys won't put together the "pants-ing" thing until after the costumes are turned in tonight. I think that the whole staging field got enough looks at their boxers just with the change into the closing number.

There was no waiting on the pantsing. Sadly, the second they had their costumes on, the pantsing began.

I don't think I've ever seen so much of the youth of our stake, girls and boys both. Many of the girls were changing out in the open too.

Poor poor planning on the part of the organizers to not have appropriate dressing rooms. Yikes!

Maybe we should move that picture of Evan to the page on starting fires. That would explain the brains behind playing with matches!
