Playing yo-yo

The 3 older kids, very much impressed by the yo-yo act they recently witnessed at their homeschooling co-op variety show, all got "yo-yo's" for Jellybean Day.  Why in quotes, you may ask?  Well, they're not really yo-yo's.  The basic form is the same, but it's on a springy string that automatically comes right back to the yo-yo-er without much technique involved.  They still love it, though, and it's easy enough for Noah to feel like he's got a good handle on it.

Yesterday afternoon, they were playing with these things out on the patio, and they decided that they needed music, just like the real yo-yo act they saw.  So we turned on a cd on the outside speakers and they had a blast.

So today, Caleb requested some yo-yo music to practice with, and Daddy let him look through an old cd case and choose what he wanted.

His choice, he declared, was the perfect yo-yo music!
