new tradition

Saturday is drum day in our little house. I would apologize to the landlords, but they raised the drum teacher so I think they're well acquainted with the old familiar bangs and crashes.




Ambrose was so determined and focused and into it that I teared up more than once. My grown up little musician.

And I wonder if Asher liked it or not?





Intense!

Can you imagine what these boys will be like in 5, 7, 10 years? I'm along for the ride. Can't wait!

I was just thinking about your talented husband, and wondering if the kids will want to play drums like him. (to put this thought in context, Taj is "learning" to play basketball. It's great fun when it's spur of the moment, but now Micah is coaching and it gets tricky...). It looks so fun. I know how the Mom teary thing goes.

stephanie joy said...

Yeah, I thought of that- it's tricky when something goes from being casual to being more official and structured. They are so young that Thomas says it's not a great time to actually teach a specific method or beats yet so they kind of messed around and got comfortable with the little set-up we had. I am hoping to brainwash them! haha Turn on loud music they like every Saturday and let dad do his thing and they'll think it's all cool and want to copy him - it'll work right? right?!?! haha :)
