Day 22 finds me looking at my sweet girl. We went last night and got her fitted for her band instrument. She has been pestering me about being in band because she knows how much her brother enjoys it and how good he is in band. Her top three choices going in were violin, flute and trumpet. I put the kibosh on the violin at the start. As soon as she picked up the flute, we knew it was a natural fit for her – nice sound! The trumpet was okay, but the sound wasn’t as fluid.
The flute we brought home with us is used, barely and she loves it. I am looking forward to band concerts with both of my children playing, though I am not too sure about her staying power with band; Michael, I think, will have a life long love of music. He gets that love from his Great-Grandpa Witherell and wow! What an ear for tune and rhythm Michael has! Quite unlike his tone-deaf mother….
The sun was shining so brightly this late afternoon, that Sam and I decided that we should go out and get my photo of the day of her flute. We all know how enamored I am of the shine-shininess of it!
