talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Yurtfolk!

Today we attended a library program by a family of four who sang folk songs, played instruments, and acted out stories. They live on a farm in a yurt in a nearby area.

Neither Fiona nor Nora wanted to volunteer as helpers in the program, and were a bit slow to warm up there, but they were both very tuned in for the entire thing; and loved playing the spoons that were handed out at the beginning of the program. You'd think we didn't have a set of spoons (and bones) to play at home already. Nora was finding a beat in many of the songs once she got the hang of it.

I think the true test of enjoyment might be that I've heard Fiona singing snippets of new songs off and on throughout the day today. I asked her whether she'd like to catch the program at another library branch, and both kids jumped at the possibility. Chalk that one up as a win, library!

Jen,

What a treat to read that folks are singing even after the program is over! We remember you and your children and would like to send your family a complimentary "Yurtfolk: Anyone Can Sing" CD (out just recently).

I'll send it to the Tecumseh Branch to your attention.

Thanks again!
