(and my first post with video!!)
We have a little musician on our hands! Seth has always loved music, and he learns new things really well when they are set to music. He has become our resident djembe (African drum) player at New Hope. He will be up on stage jamming away on the drum for 30 -40 minutes with the band and not get bored. On Wednesday night, he was playing with us while we were getting ready for the Youth Gathering. We finished up with practice and were all doing last minute things to get ready, and I noticed Seth still up on the stage, still standing by his drum, with this sad little look on his face. I went up and asked him what was wrong and he said, "Play music?". I pointed out to him that our acoustic guitarist was still on the stage strumming, and his face lit up and he started playing his drum again. We love that he loves music!
(I know this picture is awful, but Steve's flash batteries died on me. I love how you can see his little hands going to town, though!)
So another one of Seth's' favorite things is the "Brown Bear" book by Eric Carle. His teacher at preschool taught them the whole book in a song. Steve had the brilliant idea of capturing this on his MacBook, which records video. So here is Seth, in his blog-video debut singing, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?" (Side note: the reason he is making so many funny faces is because he was watching himself on the computer screen as this was being recorded. This video is rather long, but if you make it to the end you can see the big finish!)
