Four weeks in and I am really beginning to look forward to Thursdays and these posts to see what you all are doing in your own school’s.
If you are new to Study of the Composers, feel free to grab the button over there on the right, post it onto your blog, and join right in!
Now is the portion of the program where I tell you what we did this week.
I would love to tell you that we did some wonderful thing…… Truth is we didn’t do any work with Mozart this week. ….. yet. Yesterday it was on our schedule to do right after piano practice.
Problem was, that about 3 songs into practicing, Hunter grew a wild hair. He decided to get up from the bench and show me this “cool trick” he had been working on. It involved old couch cushions stacked up, running, jumping and flipping. I uttered the standard mom caution, and stated that if it had to do with jumping and flipping I didn’t want to see it. He, caught up in the uber coolness of his own amazingness, proceeded to show the trick…. without the running, and attempted a standing flip.
He landed smack on the back of his head and jarred his neck so completely I was tempted to take him to have it X-rayed. I very safely got him to my bed where he could lay flat and undisturbed, and had him lay on some ice off and on…. He cooled his heels, staring at the ceiling for about an hour and a half until, Big Daddy, our military medic, came home from work and gave him the once over and declared him “ok”, but told him he was not to wrestle or jump around for the next few days.
some days…….. just don’t go like you plan……..
Well now that I have been completely transparent about how we DIDN’T do Mozart (yet) this week…
How is it going with you?
