She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain...

Today, the kids enjoyed music class at school. My kids have always LOVED music and that passion is still there for them. I work right across the hallway from the music teacher and she shared with me her "story of the day" about my child.

The class was learning and talking about the song, "She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain..." in preparation for Grandparents' Day. They talked about the clothes that she might have been wearing, the six wide horses, the mountains, etc. One thing that the music teacher pointed out was that they didn't really have a name for the "grandmother". They just sang about "she".

Abby Kate then proceeded to tell our music teacher that SHE knew the name of the "grandmother". I thought that she might have mentioned my mom's or grandmother's name, but no she came up with her own name choice for this "grandmother".

Her name - Shelby!

"She'll Be" Comin' Round the Mountain = "Shelby" Comin' Round the Mountain

That is so cute! My boys still sing their own interpretation of some songs & I just don't have the heart to tell them they're not singing the right words!

It reminds me of one of my favorite kid jokes...a little boy told his teacher that he knew the name of Jesus' father...it was Virg...you know, because he'd been learning about "Virg & Mary"!!

that's so funny! my nephew thought that in row, row, row your boat they were saying "chesley down the stream" instead of "gently down the stream." pookie does the same thing with song lyrics - love it!
