Daily Life, 32

Yesterday, we did Lindy shines in every class, while listening to Louis Armstrong tunes.

Lots of laughing kids.

Kaitlan* (Gr 3): Oh, Ms N, that is SOOO much fun! Can we do that all class?

Michael* (Gr 1--in a tone & facial expression of obvious approval): This is so silly!

Jekennia* (Gr 5--while walking in the door): Hey, Ms N, do we get to dance again today?

Me: Yep.

Jekennia*: Yay! Then what?

Me: Xylophones and ukes, blues.

Jekennia*: Sweet!

*Kaitlan, Michael and Jekennia are not, obviously, the real names of these young musicians and dancers.
