Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 23– Season
A beautiful and loving season of yoga and community ended last weekend. After 15 years in business, Ocean Yoga Center closed its doors. We laughed a lot and cried a bit, but vowed to meet again somewhere. The friendships remain. The lessons continue to be learned. Many lives will never be the same because of the positive energy within those walls.
Before I left, I kissed this window goodbye. It felt a bit silly, but I didn’t care. I’ve probably expressed every emotion possible in that space. It was safe. It was my sanctuary.
Thank you to Sugar Mountain PR for my complimentary copy of Big Block Singsong, Season 1, in exchange for this review and announcement.
On May 25th, Season 2 of Big Block Singsong will debut on Disney TV. We’ve got Season 1 and we can’t wait for the fun to continue. These cute little guys are true to their name. I suppose you could call them a bunch of block heads. But they have such talent! They sing cute songs, wear funny disguises, and teach some valuable lessons. Whatever it is, it works for my daughter, and she loves to sing along!
Here you see her jamming to “I’m not right-side up; I’m upside-down!” and “I’m up-high… now I’m down-low!” She also enjoys “You brush them all around, you brush them up… and down!” and “What do you see? Hair!”
These sweet and square characters teach about emotions, diversity, hygiene, animals/insects, body parts and much more. They’re fun, energetic, and downright cute. Be there or be square…sing along with Big Blocks!
