This week in our home school, Mr. C and I are studying the life and music of, Antonin Dvorak. He was a Czech Romantic Composer who lived between the years 1841-1904. I thought for your entertainment and as a gift to you, I would let you hear what some of the musicians in this household are composing and playing.
I present to you, Mr. Levi playing hot cross buns in E Minor:
And Mr. J playing Flight of the Bumble Bee in C Major:
And as a grand finale, I would like to present Mr. C who found this piece laying around and has been gracing our ears with this piece for a few days now. Can I just say, I love having Native's in my house who play the piano so well and just for the fun of it, sit down, and learn/teach themselves new pieces on top of the piano pieces they are already learning for their piano teacher!
Now for the gift to me part. Drum roll please. That which when I looked out the window and saw the postman get out of his truck and walk up to my front door I gave a squeal for.
All the way from South Africa!
Isn't this just delightful? As if just holding the package isn't enough! I opened it up and found this very happy wrapped package and then the cutest little bug on a clothespin and a note.
Had to do a couple of jigs around the island while opening this I was so excited.
Hand spun, hand dyed yarn from the lovely Linda from South Africa. Thank you Linda!! You made a very grey drizzly day turn most happy and sunny!
Now, what to make with this yummy goodness!
