One load of laundry, a made bed and a cup of tea all were taken into consideration for my subject this week, but none of them would have been as cute at this:
I can't tell you how happy it makes my heart to hear them play. They work hard and it shows. So, I very happily chose listening to their musical routine as the featured, photographed part of 'My Daily Routine'. (Sorry to all of those of you who would've loved to see my laundry baskets.)
My little musicians are working particularly hard on the score for a high school musical they'll be playing in. It's very different from anything they've done so far, since they'll be part of an orchestra and only playing a very distinct part of the music. (Explained by a musical nobody, so please excuse me.)
In exasperation yesterday while they were practicing, Enzo blurted out, "I can't believe I'm doing this for free!"
Grandma and I just about rolled over laughing... The jaded outlook of a child professional musician.
But, wonderful big brother that he is, Nico takes the time to turn around and help Enzo figure out the chord formations and Enzo plugs away.
I can't wait to see how proud they are of themselves when it's all said and done and they've managed to get in there and play with the high school orchestra like the true professionals that they are.
