Rhett had his first piano recital last weekend. He was nervous, scared, excited, and a little giddy about the whole experience. He likes piano lessons more now that he knows what to expect at the recital. He was acting out a lot at and about his piano lessons, but now he can't wait to go...well, for now.
I wish I had better pictures...I was taking pictures really fast, because I was the only crazy mom with the camera at the front of the room.
A little back story on Rhett and the piano. He begged us for lessons...BEGGED. Finally we thought he was old enough. He has loved the piano since he was tiny. Once on a trip to the beach all he wanted to do was play the piano and make up songs with someone...instead of going to the beach to play. I'm serious...it was all he wanted to do. He was 2 1/2.
We recently acquired Dan's parents piano. Rhett has been making up his own songs. He plays the piano everyday. Not only does he make up his own songs, but he remembers them and plays them again and again. He has taught himself how to play songs too. This Mama was proud when he figured out how to play Do-Re-Mi.
We also saw cute kids like this one on the drums and piano...this kid was so tiny and cute on the drums.
