the soundtrack of life in our home.
and they do love to play once they have figured out the notes.
she sticks out her tongue quite often when she concentrates.
she gets silly too....
we got this piano for FREE from the classifieds when we lived in illinois.
in the newspaper...before craigslist existed!
the woman giving it away was going to miss it and she said "it has a sweet sound" several times.
it's been well loved for a long time.
(and i think it needs some white paint on it sooner or later.
i can't believe it's still wood color after all these years!)
all the kids have taken lessons at some point in their little lives.
right now it's only talby and annie playing.
i wish they all played.
but i am just not that mom.
it takes so much dedication from THE MOM to have all your kids play and keep at it.
so we are down to two kiddos in lessons immediately after school on mondays.
one awesome thing about their lessons is they are at a college in the music department.
so when we walk in every week there is music everywhere.
trumpets practicing scales....cellos, violins and yesterday a full choir was singing!
i love that extra something the music dept. brings to our mondays.
and there is that tongue again!
waffle always has to be right at our feet.
well since i showed a home video yesterday....
why not one more today?!
it makes the pictures come to life right?
pretty quickly waffle begins barking and continues throughout the entire song.
i am sure it was at something very important like a leaf falling or a person walking by two blocks away....
i hope that one day at least ONE of our kids wants to play an instrument for fun.
but it has to be their choice and it's either in you or it's not.
and it's not in me.
but i sure do love to listen to them play.
what about you?
do you play?
do your kids?
