I am also most proud of my husband who will do his Egyptian dance at the drop of a hat. This silly side of him is one reason I married the guy. It's rare that he shows this side to anyone besides me, so please enjoy! The tune they are playing is called Fisher's Hornpipe.

Okay, so I am super proud of these two. Big Boy has taken violin since he was 9. Little Boy is on his 3rd year (but 1st with a 'real' teacher). Little Boy has made the biggest strides this past year. He is a devoted practicer and really thinks before he plays. You may recall how he gave himself blisters when perfecting his bow hold back in September. He confided in me the other day on the way to his lesson, that he was really glad I made him take violin. You could have picked up my jaw up off the floor. Not many moments like that come along in my experience as a mom. After all this practicing, now comes the great times when they can play tunes together. It tickles me to no end. Which is probably why I have to really pull teeth to get them to do it. I get the most resistance from Big Boy who has turned a bit surly in his teenaged years. (Help!)
