Jayne had his first dance class on Thursday. He was about as adorable as he could get when I got to watch his routine he learned. I asked him what he thought of it and he said he wants to do that every day! I'm glad he enjoyed it. Plus it is a built in day of P.E. each week which was part of the point to start with. His group only had 2 in it, so we have to switch to another time. It is fine though. His new time means that his Daddy will get to come too and I will have someone to chat with while Jayne is in class.
Dancing his very first routine. So proud of him! He looked like a natural.
In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.
Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
