day 179: Johannes Sebastian Burton

#1 and his friend stopped by last night.  The other three boys were out, so we had some time to just visit with these two, and we chose to do it around the piano.  Geo started out by playing some Chopin and Elgar and Schumann.  Then #1 sat down to try out his memory on some Bach inventions.  He played right hand while M played left.  Teamwork is a good thing to test out when you are 21 and figuring out your future. It is a life skill that ends up being so incredibly important.   

I love this guy.

I look at those pictures and I just wish I could hear the sweet melodies that must have been played.

How wonderful it is to enjoy your family the way you do!

We are just at the point (read:aging) where we are more free to enjoy our adult kids. When you get there you won't believe how much you find yourself just staring at your daughters and thinking how great they are turning out.

Karen you have such a great family. Happy Valentine's Day to you.

Talent flows through your family! It is good to work as a team. One may discover if having a certain person on a team will work or not.

I'm looking forward to the day when I can breathe a little sigh of relief and figure my kids are going to be (mostly) okay. This is such a tough time for returned missionaries. It's not like the old days when they could just start school and a job the day after they get back and work things out as they go.
