Musiklek....Lydia's musical playgroup!

When my parents came to visit, I thought that they just HAD to come along to MUSIKLEK, the kids singing playgroup that Lydia loves to go to every Friday. And you need to get a glimpse of the fun too....

First of all, it is only here you can get a true view of how international our part of town is. One time we counted 16 different nationalities represented in our little group!
Here, Lydia is over-excitedly helping create "waves" in the ocean, as we all sing about a boat on the waves...
To the far right is our dear Monica, who leads the playgroup by playing fun kids songs on her guitar and we all sing along. My parents might not have understood so much from all the swedish singing, but they could see how fun it is!
Educational note: I am totally amazed how much kids can memorize if it is simply in song form....Lydia has memorized and often belts out the songs from this playgroup at home and when we are out. Another little girl from Azerbijan was having trouble starting to speak (she is lydia's same age). She couldn't speak any Swedish, but somehow she could also learn and sing out loud the swedish songs from this playgroup!
