It was a great morning, the kind that hums, except in the sandbox where Esther and Eve spent their time singing. I heard them in the distance while I supported bread-making, and salt box play. I heard them while Siobhan was supporting a puzzle group in the resting room, and while Alice and Dominique invested in art. I heard them while Mara and Nora sized up each others muscles as they shaped the bread. I heard them while snackers problem solved and chanted in a butter-making activity with Dawn and I heard them while Ruby and Greyson had a little sibling cub play in the bean bag chair.
I loved that Esther and Eve made the music for our morning. I loved how playful their voices worked traveling up and down their own joyful scale with great focus, intention and originality. Their music perpetuating through their friendship, collaborating on the song only they could make together -- I honestly don't know that I have ever heard anything so sweet.
