blogger ate my picture! Well, maybe I'll find some time later in the day to post that one. I usually just holler "retreat!" if blogger is acting moody on me.
Evabeth and Jacob had their first violin lesson this week. They are both musically inclined- unlike their Mom, so they seem to be really excited about it. Evabeth is quite the taskmaster and has Jacob practicing several times a day. It is so sweet to see these two doing something together. Jacob is 13 and Evabeth is 7 so they don't have opportunity to spend a lot of time together. Jacob says that Eva remembers things better than he does! But Jacob can see and hear mistakes better than Eva- so I think they make a pretty good team. I was expecting some really atrocious screeching from them until they learned a bit more, but I am happy to say that the sounds coming from them are ever so sweet. 1234, 1234, 1234... easy on the ears, so far. Evabeth is anxious to learn the Phantom of the Opera. I tried to encourage her but still let her know that it might be a while. I am amazed by her... no way could she have done this a year ago. We are just so thankful.
