Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Bitsy, Bitsy Spido

"Bitsy, Bitsy Spido" (in Elizabethan) is an oft-heard song around our house. We joke that it's actually Elizabeth's version of "The Song that Never Ends" due to the fact that she always ends the song by repeating the beginning phrase; in her ending, however, she does change from her "BITSY, bitsy spido" to the "ITSY, bitsy spido" that "went up the water spout" (but not "again"). And I just love the melodramatic interpretation, too. This may be my favorite video clip yet...

This is adorable. And I love the "Musica Do." I can read solfege, but I've never memorized in it.

What a great spot! Very educational observations on language acquisition. I can identify with Elizabeth . . . except that she probably knows more than I do. Maybe she'll help me out soon. :-)

Looks great!
