"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Hot Crossed Buns

Inigo is doing very well in kindergarten. He had some testing done and we found out he is reading on a second grade level. (His class finally finished learning their ABC's -- about two weeks ago!)
When I was in second grade, I started piano lessons, so I thought that since the boy is reading on that level, I'd get him started. He really needs a challenge in his life and this is an inexpensive way for me to give it to him. (Lessons are cheap -- I'm his teacher!)

(He hasn't learned actual notes yet. He's still just working on learning fingering so I have him say out loud the finger numbers so he can remember them.)

It's good you can give him a challenge at home. I have 2 kindergarteners that come to my 1st grade class for reading (20 minutes a day)...maybe next year you can suggest that to his teacher. It's not fair to hold him back if there's a possibility for him to get instruction from another teacher. We do it all the time at my school...it's worth a try:)

This is cute! This is kinda what I look like trying to take up piano lessons again... except not as cute! Mom's make the best teachers!

...and I bet it smells like cotton candy.

That is so great. It is important to keep them challenged. Good luck with the lessons.

Good luck with the piano lessons. I want to start teaching lessons down here, but I'm to stinkin scared. Any advice on how to start?
