“The Hills are Alive
With the Sound of Music.”
Music fills the soul.
When atop a hill, on a farm,
surrounded by the glory of nature
as far as the eye can see,
all is good.
I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about.
I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

Beautiful day! Beautiful music!😊
Yes, and yes. 🙂
It was. I felt lucky to be in that moment. 🙂
Idyllic!! A beautiful day and music! What could be better?
My thoughts, exactly!
Music and lovely weather can make make a day special.
It really can, Sheryl, especially during this pandemic.
That’s what we need around here–a drive in live concert!
That’s exactly what it was, with people and cars far apart. Yes, I think everyone needs one.
Is that more from the drive-in birthday party, Jennie? Sensible social distancing, I see. 🙂
Best wishes, pete.
Same place, but this event happened just over the weekend. The cars were really far apart in a sort of arc, instead of lined up. In that way it felt like a concert, and the views were wide open. It was good for the soul. 🙂
Life is good to me!
What a beautiful day!!
It really was, Liz. The view of Mt. Wachusset is spectacular. It had a Vermont feel.
Yes, I can see that Vermont feel, music in a field by the barn!
Your video provides the visible proof of these words : “Music does more than soothe the soul, it brings balance to the mind, body and spirit.” – Bertice Berry, PhD. Thank-you!
Lovely quote, and I feel the video is a good visual to that quote. Thank you, Ellen.
This looks great, Jennie. It is lovely that you can at least go out a bit now.
It is a beautiful spot. With so much room everyone stayed far apart. It was wonderful be out!
what a beautiful setting, and the music is icing on the cake!
Yes, and yes!
How fun! It looks like you had a lovely day for that event! 😀
It was a glorious day. I wish you could see this mountain top (hill top?) that overlooks Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The owners tell me that the night sky and the stars are dazzling. Add music, and who could ask for more? 🙂
Ooh, that sounds awesome!🌛🪐✨
Your kinda place! 🙂
Especially the dark sky! 😀
Oh, yes! 😀
Now that’s a beautiful sight (and sounds).
what a delightful idea!
Thank you, Kate!
Wonderful Jennie! You are living inside a wonderful landscape. Enjoy it! Thank you for sharing. Michael

Music does fill the soul. That’s a pretty huge space to fill though
