I’m going to blow up this balloon (put fist in front of mouth).
And never ever stop I’ll blow (blow into fist, expand fist larger)
And I’ll blow (blow into fist, expand fist larger)
And I’ll blow (blow into fist, add other hand to make a circle)
And I’ll blow (blow into fist, expand hands larger)
Until…POP! (break hands apart and clap on pop)

HOW IT WENT:
Better than the first storytime I presented at the branch last week. Now that I knew the layout of the room, and had a better idea for the audience, I felt like I could prepare better. Also, I couldn’t get my iPhone connected to the stereo system last time, so this week, I brought in my bluetooth Urban Ears speaker, and it worked so well!
