YAY for 30 members in the Baby and Me Singing Group Help us celebrate on Wednesday, 7/7 at 10:30 in our next singing class at Kidz-n-Coffee! (Hint: There will be cake) :-) See y'all there!

In the meantime: Happy 4th of July everyone! Have fun!

And don't forget to sing American Folk Songs with your children over the weekend, such as America The Beautiful:
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
