little violins.

Before our trip I was feeling a bit nostalgic and decided to look back through our pictures for some early photos of the bigger girls with their violins.  They both started playing the Fall they turned four.  Oh my word…they were tiny little peanuts.

I can’t even begin to imagine the hours we have poured into those violins.  Daily practice.  Driving across town to lessons.  Saturday morning group lessons.  Recitals.  Contests.  Summer camps.

Every single minute has been worth it when I see them play and really enjoy the music.  I know that all of my kids won’t grow to be musicians and that is ok.  I don’t expect them to all audition for the symphony or teach orchestra in the schools.  But I hope that these years of music will help them to be sensitive, intelligent members of society.  People who look for beauty in the everyday.

So here they are…a quick progression of the years poured into music in our house.

It has been quite a journey.  One that I am thankful to have shared with the people I love the most.  Let the music live on!

Sarah Wolfe - I love this. Those tiny, chubby hands when they were four… so precious! My boys and their piano is the hardest part of my home schooling. We aren’t going to get any scholarships around here, but I want them to play and understand music so that if they want to do something with it, they can. And more than anything, I want them to be able to use it in the church or their own family to lead worship. Here’s to hoping, right? 🙂
