While the kids were in school, Beckett and I made these spiced carrot muffins. We dropped a chunk of chocolate into the middle of each muffin (just for fun).
When Pixel walked into the kitchen to grab her fourth muffin, she was singing, "So Hum, So Hum, So Hum, So Hum..." Pixel has a lovely singing voice so I told her so. I asked where she learned that tune. She mentioned that she learned it in Yoga class (the kids do yoga at school three mornings a week). While yoga is in Spanish, elements of traditional yoga, such as chanting, are worked in. She then informed me that "So Hum" means: I am grateful for who I am.
I too am grateful for who is she is. I am also grateful that the kids are attending a school that encourages the students to be grateful for who they are.
In regards to yoga in school, this Encinitas news story recently came to my attention: Parents Demand Removal of School Yoga Class.
Then I told her she could not have that fourth muffin.
