Sunday Salon: Karate and Neil Gaiman
Friday I spent the day at Disneyland with my daughter and her school choir. They performed at 10:00 at the Carnation Stage (for those of you who've been there). Their outfits and (dare I say cheesy) songs fit in perfectly! Then we had the rest of the day to play and ride the rides. I hadn't been to the "Happiest Place on Earth" in a long time so it was fun. And, there I am in front of Cinderella's castle, wearing the rust-colored capris that my daughter dislikes so much. I should count myself lucky she admitted I was her mother all day!
Yesterday my daughter competed in a karate tournament. At this point in her training she doesn't do any sparring, just the performance of the kata (routines). This fits so well with her dancing! Anyway, a little bragging...she got first place! It's one of the first times I've seen her really proud of herself and glowing so that was really great to see.
A Teacher Librarian friend of mine posted this video and I think it's great. Just under 2 minutes of Neil Gaiman talking about Librarians and Libraries.
