And yes, I'm MAKING all the kids LEARN the piano....before media. (Thanks Bethany!) And I myself will relearn all the scales...2 octaves, both hands. I can do them with two hands, one octave, for the most part.
Of course, DD HATES the piano. Doesn't want to learn it. Even though she has the nicest touch. And #1 memorizes everything so..he is now learning to read the notes as he plays. He is relearning (or learning correctly for the first time) the rhythm of that song b/c he hasn't been playing it with the right values on that notes.
And..yes, once again, our front rooms are my favorite place in the entire house! Where else can I help one on the piano and one with the homework, while #3 reads out loud to me...and write a blog entry, all at the same time. Okay, so the entry is taking a while to type up. But oh, what learning is had in sunny yellow rooms! It's my mom cave and I love it!
