Cameron saved up his allowance and got an electric guitar! He's very excited and can now join Ethan in some jamming sessions. We did use part of the weekend to create a spot for them to practice in the garage. :)
Ethan has been perfecting his Paul McCartney by figuring out the chords to "Blackbird." He's currently enrolled in Exploring Percussion at school so he's going to be learning a third instrument.
So proud of these boys!

Cameron and Ashton also had pajama day at school and loved wearing their Christmas jammies!

The 5th grade classes at school performed a musical this week called, "The 13 Colonies." Our Cameron, though, was not on stage. He begged his teacher to run sound and manage props, backstage. So, we showed up to the performance and watch his classmates sing and dance! I had to go backstage to get photos of him. He was in his element!

At school, with my 3-6 graders, we are talking about the different instrument families. This week, we talked about the string family, specifically the guitar and the electric bass. It just so happens that I know 2 guys that play those string instruments! :) Maybe I could make a little video of them playing for the kids at school to see? So here they are. Video #1: Derrik explaining about the acoustic guitar
Video #2: Ethan and Derrik talking about the electric bass
Video #3: Both playing together
