Sharing those magical moments...

As we cleaned out our closets over the weekend,
Koen found a small guitar
that Roger had bought at a flea market years ago.

He plopped down and strummed the strings.
It was just so awesome
to see him holding a guitar and enjoying playing it.

Roger plays Classical Guitar
so it was especially wonderful for him to see
his youngest son
take to it so easily.


He caught a glimpse of himself in the mirror
and was fascinated by his reflection.


He turned around and performed for us all.
The most heartfelt nonsensical song filled the room.
His little voice was so sweet
as it accompanied the sounds of disorganized music.

My future musician found a new passion
as I've discovered him playing his little guitar
several times since them.

I can't wait to watch his love for music blossom.

Don't forget that
I am hosting an awesome giveaway
over at Leigh vs Laundry Reviews.

Ahhhh... Those photos are so adorable! Makes me recall those special, magical moments when my own kids discovered old treasures and gave them new purpose!

It will be fun to see if his love for music continues to blossom!

So darling. We've just started instrument lessons in our house, and it's been absolutely wonderful to see my boys enjoy something that was so important to me growing up.

I have a soft spot for music in my heart since I'm a singer so I just ADORE this. I love that he took to it so easily and what sweet pictures. :)

It is so awesome to see their artistic impulses expressed, isn't it!!? I think it's important for us as parents to foster those desires and never let the world squelch them. You always seem like you do such a great job of allowing your children to express themselves.

I LOVE these pictures of Koen, Leigh. He is growing up before our very eyes!
