It has been a bit of a struggle to make it to drum lessons because it is at peak rush hour in retail hell, a place best avoided, especially as the holidays approach. I inquired about changing the day but was told it wasn't possible, so we're kind of stuck at this less than ideal time.
However, we did find out the music teacher at the school also gives private lessons, and drums are her specialty. How cool is that? I got in touch with her and we'll talk in the new year. Could open up more optimal avenues for the future in terms of convenience.
Also wanted to thank our friends and neighbors, BF and his folks, for thinking of us when they had an extra gingerbread house and train. The kids were thrilled about it, and after mom helped with the general structure, the kids went to work and decorated it all by their lonesome. They did a fantastic job, don't you think? Just goes to show you, left to their own devices, kids can do amazing things.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
