The 3rd Violinist

She has been begging me for over a year. It's taken me exactly that long to bring myself to grips with 3 children practicing before school and 3 girls I shuttle hither yonder to lessons each week. When we were finally at the violin store, her excitement was bubbling out of her pores. As she was measured for the tiniest violin ever, she couldn't even stand still.

She told everyone, and I mean everyone, that she was starting violin lessons today. Sam and Makell just looked at her and shook their heads. I could almost read their thoughts...."oh, you have no idea what you're getting into...." I watched her and marveled at this bright, eager, beyond determined 6 year old. She was so cute I wanted to just squeeze her.

One lesson down and numerous more to go. I wonder if she'll be this cute after a month or two of practicing with me. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm expecting your little orchestra to provide some entertainment while you're here. Hey think how good they could get if they practiced for 15 hours straight on your drive!! That sounds like a fun drive!
