Yesterday I broke my word to my 4 year old, I told her I would swing her in a blanket and throw her on the bed (her favorite thing in the world for some reason). When it was go time, I caved and said it was too late. Today I made up for it. I spent just 5-10 minutes goofing around with all of them and you know what...it made me feel a whole lot better than when I don't do that in any given day.
I am also working on a series of teaching videos that will include the kids. I've been weighing whether or not I should do these...we don't want to exploit the children...but I feel like instructional videos with how to teach them wouldn't be exploiting them. If we start making them and I feel like they are, I'll just get rid of the series. I really want to include them in all this though, and I think that this would be a good way to do that.
We went live on Facebook for the first time today...in fact I went on twice!! We started two new live series, one called "Gettin' Loopy at Lunchtime" where I just hang out with my viewers and create some sort of loop. It was fun and I got a great response. I'll be doing that one every weekday at 12:15. The second one was "Live from the Practice Room", where we allow people to join us for our practice session. This will be every Thursday at 8:30 pm.
We got amazing responses from everyone who watched and it was very encouraging. We are definitely going to continue doing it...
