Subject: RE: Kids and music: I am a rich man!
Ah, the music in this house just keeps growing. Oldest son was talking about quitting the cornet, til we were out in Iowa this summer during the Bix Biederbeck Jazz Fest. Bix and his family went to my home church, and they put on a jazz litergy every year. The cornet player they had was amazing, and got Daniel fired up. He even was kind enough to speak with Daniel in between services about sticking to it, and playing because you love it. So, along comes first week of Jr. Hi, and his band teacher has him excited once more. (Thank God for teachers with passion!)

Plus, on the 4th of July, I was playing at a party/Jam session with some amazing musicians, and afterwards, all the kids were fired up about learning more guitar.

And finally, number 2 son starts piano lessons next week.

Lottery? Lottery? We don'tneed no stinkin' lottery. I still am a very rich man.

Peace to all,
