Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for a daughter who continues to practice the flute and ride the early bus (6:48am) to attend band 2-3 times a week. I don't know many sixth graders who would be willing to do this on their own without complaining.

Did I mention that Emma is using my former flute? We had it reconditioned and I'm a teeny tiny bit proud that she's using it again.

I'm also grateful for a daughter that finds absolutely JOY and ADMIRATION in her big sister.

They aren't always perfect, but I'm soaking this ALL in today.

Beautiful post Kim!

BTW, I was in band too! I played the trumpet and still have mine too. A bit rusty (literally the horn and my playing ability), but I would love for one of our children to use it as well! So far, the only one remotely interested in music is my youngest.

:))) Hope your Friday is blessed!

My daughter, Molly, just told me she wants to learn to play the flute! Your daughters are both so beautiful. I love looking at their photos. :)

Brett doesn't even get up for school until 7:45! (slacker!)
We've been spending many evenings listening to the trumpet around here---be grateful for the FLUTE!
Thank you for taking the time to reflect on what you're thankful for. We all need reminded sometimes :)

How cool that Emma is learning on your flute!

As a 5th grader I desperately wanted to play the flute, but ended up having to play the viola instead (because my mom bought one for my brother and he switched to string bass). I HATED the viola!

I let my boys choose their own instruments when it was time -- they all play something still and most play more than one instrument.

And I still hate the viola!
