While waiting for class to start this evening, one boy was running laps around the room - I was amazed at his energy! He kept running and running and I thought he'd tire himself out for class, but he didn't - as his mother had warned me. Energy was high for everyone throughout class and the singing sounded great! I brought the ocean drum for IOTW this week. Moms and children listened and watched in awe. One exclaimed, "And I thought you couldn't top the rain stick!" Everyone loved the rolling sound of waves it made. It was a nice moment to have the ocean drum passed around while we sang My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean. At the end of class moms said they were excited to see which instrument I'd bring in next week. We'll see what I can surprise them with!
