We had a wonderful time singing Island music today at Beatrice House. A nice group was gathered and waiting as I walked through the door. We sang through many tunes from the islands including "Hot, Hot, Hot" (which really seemed to get everyone going,) "Day-O," and "Jamaica Farewell". The children took turns trying out the Steel Pan and we had a very energetic jam session to Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds." The group was a great size. Though only half as many as last week, we had 13 children, nine mothers and two staff on hand. They were fairly easy to control and participated beautifully throughout.
I spoke briefly with Miriam about the fall session, and how the Jewish High Holidays fall on the second class. She assured me that we will figure out what will work best, so as to maximize the number of classes in the session.
