Round 1 of violin lessons complete. And what a neat experience it was. The violin is so small it looks like a toy. Ms. Renee was neat and taught Joshua the fundamentals of violin. He learned how to hold the violin, what the parts of it are, and the names of the strings. Thomas watched the lesson for about 2 seconds, got bored and played in the corner with the girls. You would think he wasn't listening, but we got home and practiced a couple hours later (ok I neglected to make dinner so I made Dan take me to Spaghetti Factory for dinner instead) and both boys remembered the lesson pretty well. Here are a few pictures from the lesson and practice at home. And a picture with Dan and the boys to try and show how small this thing is!
