Sweet Music and a Winner....

Yes it is a proud Mama moment. Our rock em sock em football player/wrestler is making sweet, sweet music!! (Well probably only sweet sounding to his Moms at this point).
Josh is taking Cello Lessons!!! I couldn't be more excited and happy that he is showing an interest in the arts. I do believe they are so important in a young persons life. It is very scary to think that some schools don't have art /music programs and that children are missing out on this.
You that know me know I am a real sports mom and look forward to each week watching Josh play football or wrestle, but I have to admit I love this gentler side to him also. He knows it is a commitment and that he has to practice this just as dedicated as he practices football. He is very excited to do so. We will get to see all his hard work at the end of the school year in the Spring concert. Go JOSH Go!!

and now for the Winner of the Blog giveaway!!!!

Happy Yom Kippur to all my Jewish Friends today!


  1. Oh happy day!!! Just was visiting your blog this morning and was so surprised to see my name!! I will definitely send a pic when it's finished. Glad to see Josh exploring different interests. I also think it's important for kids to be well-rounded. Thanks bunches for putting a smile on my face this morning!!!

  2. Congrats Bridget! Have fun making- though you're so talented you could have created this from scratch!
    My cousin did cello last year- he had a great time with it! Josh will have fun broadening his horizons!
    I so agree with you- the art and music program at the daycare is one of the main reasons I placed them there- (even if it is like paying college tuitions!)

  3. that's a really neat opportunity for josh. I am sure he will do great at it. That the instrument i always really wanted to learn.

  4. Go Josh!!!
    I was very athletic in high school and college, but I also played clarinet and tenor saxophone. Many times I would want to quit playing the instruments (my junior high years), but my mom would not let me quit. (Thanks, Mom) I am so thankful that I stuck it out, and ended up taking piano lessons in my twenties - someday I won't be able to run around a soccer field, but I will always have my music.
