Magical Moment

Today's Magical Moment is from Jenny Bischoff.  Jenny and her husband, Paul, have three kids--Kate (Lower Middle School), Georgia (Primary), and Calvin (Jr. Kindergarten).  This is their sixth year at SLO Classical Academy and Jenny is also the Wednesday NOL (Nice Office Lady).

I was at a friend's house the other day and our kids were playing together while we moms were enjoying a much needed tea break. They were using the program "Garage Band" on her Mac to make up silly songs (a favorite past-time), and called to us to come and hear what they'd done. The recording they made was a hilarious radio broadcast complete with a hip-hop rap song all about the history they had read that day. Whose kids do this? It was great - they thought of it themselves, they had a blast, they got to be creative, and they were doing narration without even realizing it! Yet another reminder of why I love being part of this school. 

Thanks for sharing, Jenny. What a great use of technology to enhance learning. Have you left a comment on our Kindness post?  Leave a comment or suggestion and be entered in a drawing for a $10 Starbucks card.  Contest closes Wednesday.

I love this story, but what I really want to know is... how was your tea break?? It's inspiring to read that moms are able to meet up during the day every now and then for time together. We need play-dates just as much as our kids do! :-)
