in fourth grade music class, all students learn to play the recorder.
this was something i actually dreaded for josh.
no way he's gonna like that.
yea, um, wrong again, mom.
he loves it.
so far he has mastered three songs and is working on his fourth.
he knows each note and how it should be played.
he has practiced on our back deck almost every night and has taught anna how to play too.
(her recorder was a prize from the dentist's office)
sure, it won't last forever.
but this is yet another time in my journey through motherhood where my child has surprised me, proven me wrong and taught me a lesson.
