Rest in peace Katie girl.

Dancing in the Kitchen

Tonight after dinner, Dean started singing "It's a Wonderful World". So I found it on youtube and we sang along and danced in the kitchen. That was the kickoff! For the next 30 minutes, we found music on youtube and sang and danced. It was really fun.
Here's the playlist:
"What a Wonderful World"
Louis Armstrong

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

"Crocodile Rock"
Elton John

"Rocket Man"
Elton John

"Tiny Dancer"
Elton John

...yes we did get on an Elton John kick...

"Born this Way" (the BEST one to dance to!!)
Lady Gaga

...and our song and dance evening ended with the boys doing an a capella version of Ise Oluwa Ko Le Baje O (video below courtesy Amasong)

I'm going to make this a part of our nightly ritual as it serves 2 purposes. I can introduce them to new music and it's a great family activity. Well, maybe 3 purposes...depending on the music I play considering music is often used as a platform for education or to spark controversy. Which is great as it will ignite their curiosity and give us an opportunity to educate.

I love nights like this with low, rippling clouds highlighted in yellow, pink and blue.
So gorgeous....
