Drum lesson fiasco

I think I’ve mentioned it here before- Lotus wanted to learn drums so we bought an inexpensive set and signed her up for lessons. She has changed her mind a couple times and we have recently tried a different teacher who comes to our home (hooray!)

Unfortunately, she is already changing her mind, which is an unusual situation for me to have a kid ask for the same thing and keep quitting. My guess is she is craving a new skill but the drums are not the right fit. 

Simon is interested in taking over the home drum lessons, and seems to be a natural for it. Maybe we’ll try piano for Lotus. 

And, just because the photo is on my phone…

Simon hits the big 1.0. and had a great day! 

Jason and I bum rushed him in his bed this morning with balloons and gifts and he jolted up saying, “I completely forgot it was finally my birthday!”

He worked on a puzzle with rollerblades on: place a few pieces, then skate three laps through the kitchen-dining room-living room. Shall we call it Extreme Puzzling? 

Ice cream cake and bacon burgers were the dinner choice…
