All of my boys are in school! (and looking adorable if I say so myself). I know, I have talked about it all week, but its a pretty big day for all of us. I am not sure if the twins will be in school next year (speech therapy requirements) so I am trying not to get too comfortable with the freedom.
Back to school means back to some routines. I know Jett thrived in a bit of structure over the summer. The first month was nothing but beach days and splash parks, but August required (for both of us) more structured activities. Jett LOVED going to bike camp one week, and a full day gymnastics camp. We are all set for school to start, but he actually attends less than he did the year before. Moms tell me this is typical of kindergarten. I don’t have a lot of time after dropping him off before I have to turn around and go get him! Needless to say, we are both really excited to start some new lessons this year.
I recently moved my piano out of my office and into the living room. I have always wanted my children to learn piano, as I myself took lessons for 11 of my school years. When the piano came out I tried teaching Jett to plat a few notes and hot crossed buns. I knew that he was finally at an age to take some music classes, and maybe I should find him a teacher.
I found a great program through Yamaha Music School that has classes for younger kids to learn and love music. I actually found a great class learning on a keyboard for Jett, and was thrilled to see music classes for Jager and Boston as well. The group classes are parented, so we are heading on the weekend so Dad can come with us!
I am so excited to see how they like it, what they learn, and see the method of teaching used. The Yamaha music system is very different from how I learned so it should be interesting. I will keep you posted as to how the classes go!
