A Trip to the Zoo and Some Silly Fun

I brought my kids and my new camera to the zoo yesterday, and I think I got a handle on how to work the camera.


The kids, however, will do as they please most of the time. Though they will stand, reluctantly, for the obligatory What's your Wingspan photo

In non-zoo-related news, I finished up my music blocks yesterday and they have brought me no end of joy. 
Look how easy it is to show an inverted chord!
Or a (giggle) blocked chord!
Also, you can flip over the blocks that are accidentals in the key and have an easy reminder when you're playing a piece!
I'm sure the fun will wear off eventually, but I am pretty jazzed about this new teaching tool.

I certainly does look like you're getting a feel for the new camera. The bird photo is pretty amazing.

Oh that's such a clever idea for remembering - what a great teaching tool :)
