Though today is Halloween, we didn't do anything particularly treat-worthy. We were up and out of the house bright and early this morning to meet up with Grandma, Auntie Michelle and cousins Ryland and Maryn for a concert downtown. Whoever planned this thing for 10 a.m. needs a stern talking to, but it all worked out well. We hopped on the train and headed into downtown with all the business people heading to work (and secretly I was laughing at all of them...ha, ha, ha you have to go to work!)
It was Abner's first time attending Let Your Music Shine with Lisa and Linda but Grandma's been taking Ryland for years. Today's theme was Teddy Bear's Music Picnic and we learned all about the cello, French horn, and clarinet. Even though Abner was pretty tired, you could tell she really liked it. There was lots of opportunity to move around and practice clapping and such.
Kudos to Lisa and Linda for knowing exactly how long kids can pay attention for...FYI, it's about 45 minutes. Now, if I could just get that damned Let Your Music Shine song out of my head.
