For Sherrie Neely, one of the hardest parts of social distancing is telling her daughter she can’t walk over to her grandparent’s house to visit. Six-year-old Kira Neely has a very close relationship with her grandparents, who live right across the street from her Nashville, Tennessee home. Kira and grandpa have come up with a fun way to stay connected.
Neely recently shared a sweet video on Facebook of her daughter having a dance-off with her grandfather, both in front of their respective homes. The duo are dancing to the Jackson Five song “ABC.” The clip shows the duo taking turns performing dance moves, watching each other from across the street.
She wrote, “This is the street that separates my house from my parent’s house, and is typically crossed multiple times throughout the day. Kira loves her “Papa” so much and they’ve now started daily “dance offs” since the virus is keeping them separated. My Dad is turning 81 years old next month and I’ve never seen him dance, but he’s really putting forth great effort and has some special moves!!!!”
Kira’s grandpa also likes sitting outside so he can watch Kira playing outside of her house.
It’s clear to see that these two have a very special relationship.
