This week at the library we had the best storytime I've been to (and I really love storytime!) The storyteller danced out an African folk-tale as she told the story, stopping throughout to turn on some music and let the kids recreate (through dance) what had just happened - an elephant stomping through the forest and trumpeting his trunk, a cheetah racing around and creating a whirlwind, a turtle tickling himself out of the belly of a giant python... It was just so fun and energetic and helped me remember how much I really love dance. So the last few days, we've had some dancing time (usually as part of our playing pretend, like the storyteller did) and it's just been so fun. Landon loves to race around and Ellie loves to jump and I'm happy for the quick little energy boost of exercise.
