Hi!

I hope you had a great weekend! I can’t believe it’s been a week already!

It’s time to mambo tonight! As I said last week, it was a little daunting for me to learn, but I think I’ve got it. Mark has been great and patient with me about getting me to shake it! I know I have to leave it all out there on the dance floor!

I just want to give some shout-outs to my family now — my husband, who’s been amazing. He’s still in his hockey season so it’s a little sad we’re going to be separated, but he’s been so supportive of me. He’d come to watch us practice during the past month and would tell me, “Oh, you’ve got to teach me all these dance moves once all this is done!” I hope we stay in it long enough so he can come see me compete.

And my kids! I missed them terribly when we were apart! They’ve been so adorable about the whole thing. My older one, Keara, is 4, and was telling all her friends and teachers about me doing the show — even before she was supposed to be telling them! My younger one, Emma, is 2. They both love to dance and got a chance to dance with Mark. I think Emma has a little crush on Mark! She acts a little coy and shy around him!

Well that’s all for now. Busy, busy day today! I hope you’ll be watching! Thank you to everyone for your support!

See you soon!

Kristi
