So, I was scrolling back and realized I never shared one of my favorite Christmas memories.
This!! My very own, private Christmas concert! Every one of my children have learned to play an instrument. This year's concert was missing my Flute (braces have made it hard to play) But, she is learning how to Jump (as in on a horse...). I told her bringing a horse in to jump over furniture was out this year. :-)
All those hours of practice, the expense of lessons are WORTH EVERY MINUTE! I pray they will always play, and that they will enjoy it half as much as I do hearing them.
