Here she is dancing it up with her shaker eggs:
Here she is dancing with her daddy:
Here are some more moments of awesomeness for you:
|I'll be honest, I have no idea, but so cute!|
|Oh, hello there.|
|She really dug the ceiling fixtures.|
|Dancing with Daddy.|
|Um, I may have closed the egg in the car door,|
purely on accident, mind you.
|Shake shake shake!|
|I love maracas!|
|I must organize them all...|
|Time to climb on Mommy!|
|Stealing Daddy's hat now.|
|Playing with her new frog guiro, spoils of the evening.|
|This frog is awesome!|
It was raining like nuts, which is why we are all a bit bedraggled, but it was still oodles of fun. They had an instrument "petting zoo" set up too, where you could peruse various types of bongos and chimes and other such percussion instruments. We checked it out afterwards (since we arrived a little late due to said rain) and ended up getting Baby Girl a really cool wooden guiro carved in the shape of a frog. This is awesome because she loves frogs and because we bought it at TCU.
If you are wondering about the poor mutilated shaker egg, I had it in an outside pocket of my purse and when I was getting Baby Girl out of the car, it fell out unbeknownst to me and landed just inside the door frame. So when I went to shut the door...oops. The dent doesn't really seem to be hindering its performance at all, so there's that.
Anyhoo, that's another semester of fun music and memories wrapped up. We start back up in January. I think this semester the instrument of choice is bells. I'll be curious to see what the musical selections are. I do love the CDs we get with the class--you get two copies of each album so you can play one in the home and keep one in the car, which is kind of neat. They always include a great mixture of old folk songs from lots of different cultures, as well as the "Hello" and "Goodbye" songs that we sing at the beginning of each class.
If you've got little ones and are looking for a fun developmental course to do with them, I highly recommend this one. Our class is mixed ages from zero to four years, and the program we use (Music Together), which is phenomenal, has programs designed for up to seven years old. We take ours at TCU, as I mentioned, through their Music Preparatory Division.
