A Ragtime Morning

Good morning!
We all got up bright and early this morning. Matt gave a presentation yesterday and got all excited about chemistry again. So he got up early so he could get back to work. Madeleine has allergies pretty bad from all this rain we've been having, so she got up earlier than usual. And it's my first day of work! So I got up because I couldn't sleep. (A cranky baby might have helped with that too.)

We had a bit of time to kill before campus opens from flooding, so we turned to the piano. We started with Beethoven and end with some ragtime. We all took turns playing. Having a piano in the home has been wonderful.

And ragtime I think was made to make people dance, so we did. I got all my new job jitters out doing the jitterbug, while Matt and Madeleine swung around the living room.

How do you like to start your morning? Any favorite songs to wake up to?


  1. Where are you working? So exciting!

    1. I'm watching a newborn at my house 45 hours a week! It's basically my own mini daycare. I figure it gives Madeleine someone to hangout with (I'm not ready for another baby) and us some extra income along with keeping my resume updated. :)

  2. I like to start our mornings watching short little educational videos/songs on YouTube--Kids123, Patty Shukla, Barney, Sesame Street, etc. It's fun but it means getting songs about colors and shapes stuck in your head all day! Haha. You guys are cute. Thanks for inspiring me to be a better mom! :)
