Steve just started doing some contract work with a music program that works in preschools. Their mission is to "provide children an enriching music experience that reinforces positive behavior, builds self esteem, strengthens cooperative spirit, and develops the fundamental auditory and rhythmic skills required to stimulate development and a deep appreciation for the humanities." Pretty cool!
Steve has a sidekick named Roscoe that will be part of his program. He introduced Roscoe to Seth and Caleb yesterday, and to say that he was a hit would be the understatement of the year.
Roscoe had to be woken up to come out of his shell. The boys were fighting to get Roscoe's attention and ask him questions and tell him things.
Roscoe looks like a screamer in this next picture. I assure you he is not. He is a very mild mannered turtle who is often sleepy and likes talking to small children.
Roscoe read the boys a bedtime story tonight then turned in for the evening. But not before he gave out a few hugs and kisses.
