Toddler Music Time at the Nursing Home!

We have had such a great time going every week to the nursing home and doing a toddler music time. Here are some pictures! I hope that more kids can come and join us this summer. We've had such a blast. :) Its also such a great opportunity for Anthony to get comfortable with older people and learn to serve at an early age. He loves the nursing home!
