Today Tyler came home with a permission slip for band. They offer it at 4th grade and he is real excited to play. He wants to play the flute and/or clarinet. I chatted with the band director to see if there were boy flute players and there are quite a few. So, Tyler is picking flute for his first choice and clarinet. At this age they are just trying out the instruments and since I own both he will be able to use mine. He is so excited. I am encouraging him to try choir as well. At this age they are fearless to try new things and I love that. In chatting with the director he said he is least learned in flute so maybe I wanted to sit in sometime and help out. HAH, I have not picked up my flute in years but this may be the time. I guess I will be up in that attic getting the instruments down. I think it is so great that his school still has the arts available for the kids. I will support anything he tries. And, with the flute I will be able to help him.
I am working on layouts for Paperwhite Memories using their new Holiday line. I love their papers. Here are my first two layouts:
