kids in motion

My kids look like dervishes.

There's this kids program called 4 Square that makes the kids twirl and dance.
It's actually a preschool program, but between the beat sticks being tapped out and his little sisters' badgering, Cass usually gets movin' too.

We've also started reading from a book called 'Juba This and Juba That', a cheerful book of poems, chants, and songs.


Hands on shoulders, hands on knees,
Hands behind you, if you please;
Touch your shoulders, now your nose,
Now your hair, and now your toes.
Hands up high in the air,
Down at your sides and touch your hair;
Hands up high as before,
Now clap your hands - one, two, three, four.

Say it out loud once and do the motions and see if it's not stuck in your head.

Today has been a lazy coloring/tent-making/carol singing kind of day, finished out with 'Nanny McPhee' and pizza for supper.

Then they saw 4Square, and the dancing started....

Now to wrestle them into their baths.

Saturdays used to be more exciting, y'know?

Sounds like fun! We should all twirl a little more than we do...
