After a long and grueling morning of standardized testing (math section today... UGH), I let my kids do some fun creative writing in the afternoon. One of my girls asked if I could put music on, as I often do while they work. (During testing today, I played Debussy. Yesterday's test called for some instrumental Beatles. We're very well-rounded in first grade.)
"What do you want to hear?" I asked.
"Vivaldi!" requested one boy.
Another boy waved his hand in the air. "And after that, how about some Charlie Parker?"
I was more than happy to oblige :)
