We are becoming experts at getting around in the city by public transportation. Last week was the first time we ventured on the subway (now we've taken every mode of public transportation!) We spent quite a bit of time watching the trains zoom by and listening to the music of the subway chimes.
The sounds of the subway...Our trip to 'Earth Echoes' on Bloor Street West. The store is full of different creatures (from bearded dragons to chameleons - both big and small, turtles and many different types of snakes). We met the owner of the shop, Jeff, who was really friendly and knowledgeable. He asked us if we would prefer to learn about lizards or snakes on this visit....we chose snakes! We were lucky enough to hold a baby python and two different corn snakes! We learned about their habitats and many different cool facts. We're excited to visit again and learn about a different creature family!!

Ronley Teper is a local singer-songwriter, storyteller and performance artist who has been active in the Toronto music scene for over a decade. Ronley has spent many years traveling and conducting vocal improvisational music workshops with children, and we were lucky to have her stop by and play some vocal, rhythm and improvisational games with us!
