Music in the air!

The first week is almost finished and I am happy to report that all 3 children are doing very well with their transition to public school. They all have made new friends and are getting used to the routine quite fast. They even seem to enjoy it! Fairy and Dragon have both started to learn a musical instrument. Dragon is learning a song on the recorder. He practiced all evening, only stopping for dinner, and the next morning I woke up to the sound of the recorder being played in the basement! Fairy is learning to play the flute and is also trying really hard. Just making a sound come out of that flute is difficult, she has to position her lips just the right way...I ended up searching on Youtube for her, because I am not a musical person myself and couldn't help her out. I found a series of videos that show a few basic techniques.

Princess is doing well too, she loves taking the bus, and has made new friends too!


  1. Glad to hear things are going well. Thanks for the flute link. I have a flute I never did learn to play and DD has fiddled with it some. Hopefully this will inspire us

  2. Music instruction is one area that I know already my kiddos will go to the public school for when they get older . I really enjoyed Band when I was in school and I feel strongly that it is am important skill.

    I am happy to hear that all is going well for them. I'm sure they will adapt easily - they have had you to guide them all these years - though I don't know ya'll personally, I imagine they have a strong self of self and a positive self-esteem.

  3. Glad the kiddos are getting settled in at school. Like the instruments, always fun to play an instrument. I wish I could find a group lesson for violin here, Cam doesn't want to go alone to private lessons, wants to be with other kids.
