Hi Michelle, Don't you just love beautiful schools that support music making! Our children are so lucky. I saw the lovely article about you and your family and cupcake baking friend in Country Style and just had to pop by and say hi to a fellow steiner mum. My name is Amber and I am a former steiner kindy teacher, now at home with my little 3 year old and running two creatively inspired playgroups from home. I blog about that, and also post crafty ideas for other mama bears. You might like to pop by... www.mamamoontime.com Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I found your story inspiring and I particularly liked the pic of your dog on the cover! Just delightful. Oh, and your cupcakes sound divine!!!! Vanilla bean and rose-gold pearl cupcakes-my mouth is watering!!!!
When did she start playing? I ask cause Oki has come home from school wanting desperately to play Violin, and we will organize it soon but i was wanting to find out a bit more from others who's little ones play....and voila, here's your post!!Loved your article :)
That's great that she enjoys it so much. I didn't enjoy it that much as a kid, but took it back up again last year and am so glad that I'd played it before. I love seeing little kids play the instrument as it's not a particularly easy one.
Lovely! My little girls has played the viola and has just moved onto the flute - she practiced at home the other day and I must say I got a little misty eyed.
