Separation Anxiety

The first day of school is a big step for every child, especially since they are used to being in their parents’ company almost every day of their lives.

For some ideas about on how to prepare your child for this big day read this nice article from Mommy and Me.

What does Kindermusik REALLY do?

When connected to singing, listening, dancing and playing instruments, Kindermusik provides a broad MULTI-DIMENSIONAL educational experience that sets the foundation for a LIFETIME of musical enjoyment. Your child's brain is LITERALLY forming a rich network of music, movement, language and idea connections, which, when used frequently, remains intact FOR LIFE! This network becomes even more powerful to your child when it is SHARED with YOU. That is why Kindermusik is really is the BEST CHOICE you can make for your child today.

Ludlows Island

This is a larger view of where we are spending the week. This beautiful place is called Ludlows Island. We are not on the Island but are facing it in a great cabin that is called North Side just across (to the north). The kids canoe back and forth from the lodge on the island and to the other cabins in the family. All together the Peterson clan is occupying 6 cabins so there is plenty of room to roam.

Today is rainy and cold, there is even a fire crackling in the fireplace here on the Northside. It has been a relaxing day of watching the Olympics, a little doodling on the computer (we oddly have wireless access - but no cell phone service) and general dozing. My sunburned shoulders appreciate the change in weather.
