...with the sound of music!
We borrowed the DVD from the library the other day, and today seemed like the perfect day to watch it. And Lacy LOVED IT! She was hooked from the first note. She loved Julie Andrews. Watching it with my daughters made me so incredibly happy. I have a long relationship with "The Sound of Music," and have loved it since I was a little girl.
Here is my sister and I, singing our version of "So Long, Farewell."
Yes, we're performing the beginning "cuckoo" portion of the song.
I have been singing "Edelweiss" to Lacy and Rose since they were babies. And now my baby is learning the rest of the songs. She was singing "Do Re Mi" (the "Do, a deer" song) for a week before we ever got the DVD. I'm quite sure she'll learn a few more of the songs in the next week. She was absolutely glued to the television during this movie.
So, I'd like to borrow more musicals from the library to build on her love of musicals. Anything with dancing and beautiful dresses strikes her fancy. We have a few in mind that we'd like to borrow ("The Music Man," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" are two we specifically mentioned), but I'd love to hear your suggestions for musicals to borrow that a four year old girl would love!
