Handpuppets make them Happy

Feb. 17, 2011

No matter what Connie's doing she always plays with the kids when we come over. So Caleb and Hannah love to come over... a lot!

After the hand puppets were too tired to play and they said they needed a nap, Caleb sat down at the piano and began composing. He said, "Listen Mom, this is the song for when Jesus was on the Cross." He played a slow, downward scale-ish song. Then he said, "and this is when he lived again!" He played a happy, higher pitched song. I clapped of course and was genuinely impressed that his understanding was such that he could connect a sad experience with an appropriate sad sounding song and vice verses. I mean you wouldn't necessarily play "I've got Sunshine in my soul today" at a funeral.
