Abigail surprised us by bringing home her french horn yesterday.
She said the band teacher made everyone take their instruments home.
She hasn't been going in early to practice
because she says that they have only learned three notes
and she already has them down.
She took out the instrument to demonstrate.
I said, "What notes were those?"
She said, "Mom, that was one note."
LeGrand and I busted up.
We couldn't help it.
And then LeGrand said,
"Alice, maybe you should go down to the school
to see about switching Abigail over to just choir
instead of the choir/band combination."
Abigail smacked him.
And her and I proceeded to the piano to practice some more.
It's about time the kid has some humbling experiences.
Between band and never-ending homework,
I think she's finally being challenged.
We are happy.
And still chuckling
"which notes were those?"
