I'm setting up a musical exchange via Skype for Monday morning at 8:15 Eastern time. Our 4th grade chorus here in Pennsylvania, +Jed Dearybury's 2nd graders in South Carolina, and our friends at Cheery Children Education Centre in Nairobi, Kenya will be participating.

Please let me know if you want to join us.
