Not Like We Don't Have Enough Noise Already

Our school, like most, has a 5th grade band program and Big J is going to be part of it this year. Yeah, not really sure what I was thinking when I signed that permission slip. So this afternoon Big Daddy took Big J to pick up his instrument for band and tomorrow is the first day of band practice.

  3. Well we look forward to many performances by Big J. Just think you will have a Little Drummer Boy for Christmas.

  4. OH Lene--too funny! My mom taught violin lessons when we were growing up. Trust me it could be so much worse than percussion! Ever heard beginning violinists SCREECH? It's worse than death itself! Seriously! Hang in there and get some good ear plugs! :)

  5. I played the violin as a child - I knew I didn't want to go down that road as a parent.

    Jules - I didn't think about the Little Drummer Boy thing - perfect timing.

  6. He just looks so cute in his picture... Just wait until the rest of the kids start playing it too..
    None of my kids play an instrument & I really wish they would. I would love for them to know how..
    That's funny what Kathy said. She didn't mention that her & her brothers & so freakin talented when it comes to music.
