Jack is in fourth grade *sniff* and I completely forgot that this is the year of the dreaded recorder. I know...I should be encouraging and supportive, but oh my...he plays it all the time! Which is good practice. And he hasn't had his music lesson on how to play it...so it squeaks and squawks and he blows as hard as he possible can when he gets frustrated.
He plays while walking around the house.
He plays while in the car.
He plays while we wait to pick up Sam.
It's a lot of playing, but on a bight note, he has taught himself "Mary has a Little Lamb" and "Hot Cross Buns." Yay, so now I can listen to those TWO songs for the next two months. Go, Jack.
