My house has been overflowing with music lately. I’ve been hard-pressed to get into the music room, what with all the practicing going on–not that I’m complaining!
I’m so happy my kids and I can share this love of music. I think they were programmed early, since I brought them along to choir practices when they were babies (although the twins might have been a little shortchanged in this respect). We are blessed to have fiddle, piano and guitar music in the house every day, with a bit of bass and trombone for good measure. Once in a while we even play together. My oldest writes fiddle tunes non-stop, so I chose one to arrange in 5 parts (fiddle, three guitars and bass). We get to perform it at a recital next month. I didn’t have this experience in my family when I was growing up, so I realize that this is a pretty awesome thing to share with my kids. My husband is happy to be our cheerleader and our roadie. More evidence of God’s blessings… something to smile about between all the responsibilities and busyness of family life. 🙂
