2009 in review

It's been an interesting year. I realize New Year's has already come and gone, but I thought it'd be worth writing some last 2009ish thoughts anyway, just for posterity. Here are some of the things I remember most.

Lessons from five-year-olds

This afternoon Jamie and I co-directed another session of the Denton Bible kindergarten choir. We took the kids "Christmas caroling" around various empty classrooms as a way of teaching them some new Christmas songs without losing track of their attention spans…turned out to be a great way to keep them on task. We've also been teaching them about various kinds of musical opposites: fast/slow, loud/soft, notes/rests, and so forth. I don't really remember what kinds of concepts I was learning at that age, but they seem to be getting it pretty well.

Busy week…

Most of my blogs are distinctly lacking in personal narrative, probably because I feel like I always need to say "something important" (it is the internet, after all). This, however, is not one of those "something important" sorts of posts…this is just me processing a very eventful week. If you enjoy that sort of thing, please …well, enjoy!
