           What Was Included In This Package?

   I teach music to every grandchild that is willing. Consequently nine grandchildren see me weekly for some kind of music lesson. In the fall I volunteered to teach a pre-school music class at my son's house once a week for his 3 year old twins. I asked him to find a couple of other kids who might chip in to pay a small tuition fee. In this project I would need to pull out my old class lesson plans, I taught Music and Movement to toddlers for ten years, my musical props and instruments, and remember songs and finger plays I once had memorized.

Included in this project package would be remembering the energy I once had when this was a part-time job. 

   What I didn't quite remember from classes in the past was a special ingredient which was included every week. I remembered all that I would give to them but forgot how much they would give to me. These three little people really know how to love. Their love lifted and nurtured me more than I can say. 
I love you.


We used this song as a lullaby last week.

My novel Rubato

A story of a woman's longing for beauty and her struggle to keep the beautiful even when it didn't belong to her.


  1. Your class sounds like so much fun! I'm glad you feel like you have benefitted from it too!

  2. So sweet. I did a class with my preschooler last year. Just participating in it has helped me make up jingles and have musical fun in our every day life. Music is awesome!

  3. What a wonderful gift you are giving your grandchildren!

  4. What a special time - for you and for your grandchildren! I know they love it!!
