We Have Some New Additions!

To our Kindermusik family that is!
Stinger has a sweet little brother! Shea is happy and well as is the new addition. We will miss them all and wish them great things in their new home at the other end of the state.

Ella has a new little sister! We were thrilled to find the whole family marching in the parade with us on the 4th of July. Lily slept through the parade but doesn’t sleep through big sister’s stories!

Madelyn also has a new baby sister. Isn’t she adorable?!

 

We have some more photos on the way – as well as several more babies! I predict some overflowing Village classes in the near future!

 

 

The Importance of Using Scissors

57069-1004-1ww.jpg

One of the most surprising benefits from an early education in music is the ability to use …. drum roll please … scissors. Seriously. There’s a rhythm to using scissors, a coordination of the fine motor skills, the thumb and pointing finger, working together, yet separately. Eye-hand coordination is moving the hand and scissors forward in a straight line without cutting off anything really important. (Gulp). Like a finger.

Practice with rhythm and instruments helps a child use scissors. Not so funny thing is that kindergarten teachers say that children are starting school without this very basic skill.

Breastfeeding Awareness Month

August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. The breastfeeding campaign, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, hopes to empower women to commit to breastfeeding by highlighting new research showing that babies who are exclusively breastfed for six months are less likely to develop ear infections, diarrhea and respiratory illnesses, and may be less likely to develop childhood obesity.
