Tapping on Friday

It needs work, but Lenore has started the “tapping” phase of Eruption. Soon she’ll put it all together.


Happy Friday!


Green Eyed Cutie

Green eyes like no one in the family. Sure, Jon has a hazel green...but nothing like this.

In four short weeks, our beautiful little Evangeline will turn 3. Three!!! We cannot believe how fast time is going.

Every time we turn around, another facet of the personality shines through. This one likes to be the funniest person in the room at all times. She has a quick temper, but is easily the happiest child we have ever had. Everything is a song, a smile, a belly-laugh and it’s infectious. Her siblings adore her, and sometimes fight over who gets to play, cuddle, or read to her. She is loved and she knows it.

Her hair is longer than it appears because it curls up in back, and she is so tall we have to put her in 4t clothing for the length. Unfortunately people think she is older than she really is, so sometimes that leads to complications….But that’s not such a bad thing.

More than anything (with perhaps the exception of Hobbes) she loves the swings and random kids at the park: adults..not so much! But we’re working on it.

Posted below are some pictures taken yesterday. Enjoy! We always do.

First Musical Update of 2016!


Lenore has been working hard on Eruption. She has big plans for this piece. So far, she has memorized about half of it (and I’m not including all the hours needed to improve time and technique).

Going to be a rocking year!

We went to City Hall yesterday, and it never disappoints. Here are some of the shots from the evening. Evangeline loved every minute of it!

Below is an update of Lenore’s progress for Eruption. Sure, she still needs to improve technique and speed/timing. But it’s progress nonetheless.

Music Update

So Lenore has been working hard in school, swimming and guitar. Of those three, guitar is the easiest to show. So here is some of what she has now. She started Eruption last week, and Stairway (among other things) is an ongoing lesson with her teacher. Enjoy.
