School Field Trips From My Childhood: Second Grade
September 18, 2017 12:30am CST
In second grade we spent a lot of time learning to square dance. This was so we could participate in the big Square Dance at the high school. All the schools in the district were sending their second graders to the high school to showcase our square dancing skills. They stuck us all in the gym and we do-si-doed and promenaded. I also have a memory of my class going to the movie theater to see An American Tale: Fievel Goes West, but I don't know if we actually did or not. The year adds up, but it could be a false memory because I really don't remember much else about it. (Thanks again to @Courtlynn for the inspiration for this post series.)

They made us practice so much I probably still remember how to do it! They had this weird fat guy come in and sing for us and teach us how to do it. When he wasn't able to come to our practices, they just put on his records. I always wondered who that guy was.
