White Lake State Park

Believe it or not the mercury hit 90 before Labor Day and so a bunch of us decided to head to the lake for the day. The weather was beautiful - sun shinning, temp soaring, gentle breeze blowing. Who could ask for more?

The little one had a wonderful time digging in the sand and playing on the new playgrounds. a few of them even ventured into the water, but quickly exited with shivering, blue lips.

On the other hand the older kids were die hards and swam and splashed most of the day. I don't know how they did it. You wont find me in the water for a couple of more months. It is WAY too cold for my piggies.

You can see more about our day at the beach at these family blogs.

Mountain Top Music - Cello

This was the second week of Homegrown Explorer's music exploration class with Mountain Top Music. Last week the children learned about and had the chance to play the violin. This week's instrument was the cello. Here are a few pictures . . .
The class has taught the children some basic musical notation, scales and rests as well as about the instrument and the family it is in.

Each week everyone gets a chance to play a simple song on the instrument. The rest of the group sing the song, counts the rests and claps to help keep time.

After all the children had a chance to play. Some of the moms had a turn.

You can find more pictures for our music classes on the following blogs:

Sledding Day

Here are some pics of the sledding day, thanks to Beth. We tried to post them last night at the Met but ran out of time. It looks like everyone had super fun at sledding. But I think we are all glad there is no more snow.
