The photo is me at the Wetumka library last Thursday (6/7/07) performing "Oklahoma Land Rush, 1889" - spurring on my imaginary race horse.
Can the weekend already be over? Lisa and I spent much of it just getting ready to hit the road again. Filled some CD orders, made a bank deposit, changed my guitar strings, printed out maps, made hotel reservations, did laundry, went shopping for food we can eat in the car, etc. etc. Bright and early tomorrow morning, it's giddy-up and go once again.
This week it's Watonga and McAlester, two old favorites we've visited many many times over the years, plus six libraries in the Chickasaw Regional Library System.
One really cool thing going on around here is Evalyn's butterflies. She received a butterfly kit for her birthday and we sent off for live caterpillars in little jars. Last week they all hung themselves upside down and formed chrysalises. We actually looked in at the right moment and were able to watch it happen. They transformed much more quickly than I would have thought! It was very cool.
Today, four of the chrysalises opened and the butterflies emerged, with curly damp wings. This happened very quickly - we didn't actually get to see one emerge, but we were checking in often enough to know that it must happen in a matter of just a couple of minutes at most. Hopefully this will inspire a song for next summer's bugs theme!
One final bit of good news - for all of you who have been asking whether Lisa is still doing her podcast....
Yes, and we put together a new episode today! It still needs tweaking and converting and posting, but that should all happen tomorrow night. She plans on trying to put out a new edition every two weeks over the summer. So, stay tuned for loads more great children's music coming your way!
