Home lesson

Here's some of what's happening:

  • After much procrastinating, I got to the post office (by myself!) and mailed some books to a friend in Russia and went to the bank to fix an expired debit card issue.  Not particularly difficult tasks, as it turned out, but much faster by myself.  
  • My husband and the kids are planning to build a quiz machine at home this summer so that the school's Junior Classical League kids will be able to practice with a machine before going to regionals and state next year.  We have a growing collection of parts.  They were just testing the buttons.   
  • C was teaching D "Amazing Grace" on the ukulele this morning.

May

Here's some of what's happening:

  • We have our water park summer passes!
  • C finally got to the local grownup ukulele club.  There were four people including C.  They played Folsom Prison Blues, King of the Road and Leroy Brown, switching back and forth.  The guy who was leading the group was very engaging and well-prepared--and (surprisingly) an amateur.  I was totally sure he was a professional music teacher, but he's in a completely different line of work.
  • The local grownup ukulele club meets twice a month, which is just about perfect.   They started meeting early last fall and I believe they've done a Christmas performance, but they'd like to work up to visiting nursing homes (maybe quarterly?) which is very nice.  I believe that they're trying to work up a repertoire of half a dozen songs.  
  • We're having our last school ukulele club meeting soon.
  • Everything is starting to wrap up--C's riding, youth group, and D's CCD finish up in the next week or two, and the kids have another three weeks of school.
