After Ballet . . .

. . .  we went to a library program featuring musician Ross
(think Woody Guthrie style -- it was awesome) who sang songs,
played a variety of instruments and invited the kids to join right in.

That's exactly what Ella did during the 'Where is Thumbkin?' song.
Zoe cheered Ella on from the safety of my lap, but sang along too.
It was pretty neat.

These 'small moments' really make stop and think about how blessed I am.
Many years ago it was hard to imagine that some day I might be watching
my own child sing in front of a group of people
while my other child snuggled in my lap.
I really like how things turned out.

Ross also made up songs, and one verse was about the 'two little girls with the blue tutus and flowers in their hair' -- although he somehow got everything to rhyme.  E and Z were pretty wide-eyed when they realized he was singing about them.

I didn't catch that on video, but I did record this
(it's not the best quality but it sure makes me smile):

There is no doubt that the twins take after their maternal grandmother with their dancing talent:)
