We tried to memorize the first song of High School Musical tonight. Well, actually first we tried to memorize a different song from one of the shows: "You are the music in me." Jojo picked it and it's pretty catchy-- but once I got the lyrics in front of me I realized they didn't actually make sense. I'm not going to have my daughters memorize nonsense.
Instead, we just went with the first song which happens to be "The start of something new." I now have the first verse and chorus memorized and I think Sophie might as well--but it's hard to tell. It turns out you can't sing High School Musical without dancing to it. And when you are dancing you have to concentrate on your amazing twirls so you can only sing every three words.
So, the memorization may have not been a success, but it turned into a wild dance party, and anything that turns into a wild dance party, in our house, pretty much counts a success. So...we'll probably be doing it again.
