Grandkids take down music.

It was too wet outside to play, so they sat there they two.   Nothing to do.   Then, they hit upon an idea.   They would play some music, just like mommy does.  So our two grandkids, Sophie, 2, and Sullivan, 6, pulled out some music books and chose their song well.  (Me?  I was surprised they had them upright. I wasn't even worried about the two different books, two different songs thing.) They had it down -- where to place the books, how to look over the notes, the calmness of preparation.  Then came the music.  Sweetness to a grandpa's ear.  Of course, not so much sweetness to the dogs ears.

Like you, I am often surprised how good the old piano sounds when the grandchildren set down and poke the keys.

Happy holidays.
