Elijah has also joined the home school band. he has chosen to play trumpet. I'm happy with that choice. It's not drums at least. Trumpet is a good, manly sort of instrument I think. He has really enjoyed playing it so far. Enough that I have to make him stop practicing most days. He's not too bad either, not that he's any sort of child prodigy, but for a seven year-old who has no musical experience, he does just fine. It has made me want to find myself a flute and start playing again.
Practice makes perfect, or at least better!
All together now
The last thing keeping me busier than usual would be teaching 11 college sophomores how to make jelly. The girls from Armstrong College came by today for home ec. We had a lot of fun and made a big mess, but we got some really good jam out of it as well!
