delightful sounds...

We've been working on getting Eden enrolled in a Kindermusik class for a while now. We found out through her Deaf and Hard of hearing teacher that there is a Kindermusik class that is taught in conjunction with ASL, called Delightful Sounds. Today was Eden's first class and it was wonderful! Jodi (Eden's early interventionist in Raleigh) always talked about Kindermusik and how great it was - we even attended her daughter's Kindermusik Birthday party when Eden was much younger. At that point she wasn't too responsive to the music and while I thought it was exciting, Eden didn't seem to be that impressed! Today was different. From the moment we walked in, she was so curious about everything there - mostly the other kids. We moved from song to fingerplay, to dancing to playing instruments, to story time - and with each task she was so excited, giggling, following directions and mostly watching all her newfound friends! I can't wait for our class next week!

I treated her to lunch out (ahem... IKEA) since she did so well and I had been up for more than 24 hours and didn't really feel like fixing lunch! We both went home and took a nice nap!

How wonderful that Eden loved Kindermusik! You guys are going to have a great time. Our teacher signed a lot, though it wasn't an ASL-linked class, and Addison picked up so many signs just by casually watching her teacher. Good luck this semester! Take lots of pictures!
