Guitar beginnings

It's amazing how good it feels to get back into routine after a busy vacation. Jeremy is back at work, Ian is building a track for his cars, and Sawyer is watching, trying to figure out how he can squeeze in there and help.

My brother got married over the weekend and both boys were in the wedding in teeny tiny tuxes that made them look so grown up and so handsome. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get them.

Over the last couple of months, Ian has been asking for his own guitar. He watches Jeremy play, waiting patiently for his turn to strum, and points out guitars everywhere he sees them. We knew he would probably want to learn to play, since Jeremy does, but it was amazing to see him decide when that time would be and to watch the interest grow in him. So just before we went on vacation, we bought him his own. He was so excited, jumping up and down and whooping. He immediately sat down with it, holding it perfectly, and started playing. Pretty soon, all three boys were sitting down and playing a little music together. I don't think Sawyer will be far behind...

It is so fun to see Ian playing guitar and getting to show him how to hold it, use a pick, etc. I don't care where it goes (that will be up to him), but I love sharing this with him now... though I won't be upset if he is passing me by in his musical ability in his teens. Notice Sawyer playing his little xylophone in the bottom photo - he might end up being more musical than all of us. -JC

Too cute! A very fun new activity to share in ... I love seeing them get old enough to know what they would like and really getting to enjoy it.

I love that Ian expressed interest on his own. Landon bought Sam a fiddle awhile back, but he hasn't been interested so far. Those photos are great!

Ian looks very comfortable with that guitar. He could have the gift and Sawyer too!! That would be awesome. Maybe even some painting and drawing? Who knows? Love Grandma and Grandpa Conn
