The Gift of Music


It has been such a crazy summer, that somehow time has gotten away from us.  On a whim, I decided to tell Christopher to break out his glockenspiel, from his Kindermusik.  He impressed me with his rather mad skillz, it took him a few minutes to remember things he'd forgotten.  But he did it.  I wanted him to play three songs, until they were right, and I let him pick.  His favorite is Lucy Locket, so he chose that first, and he had to practice and practice, but he got it. By the third song, he figured it out by the second time through.  Perhaps he'll get Daddy's music skills, and my good ear, then he'll be a force to reckon with.
