|Ryan with his new pet|
Apparently my 7th grader, randomly and without warning, wandered into the band room last week and asked to join. Even though we are moving in three months, the teacher let him join, let him chose an instrument, and let him bring a loaner home. Since he already has chorus for his music option, he is taking band lessons after school.
He is already in piano lessons. He has never played a French horn before. I’m not exactly sure how he knew it existed.
Nevertheless, we are now the proud guardian of a more-than-slightly-used French horn.
I don’t know if I should be proud- he does love music and takes initiative; confused- why French horn, why now?; or just plain scared- how much more noise can my poor ears take? At least I now know my Random Gene has been passed onto my children.
(I hope this doesn’t give any other family members an idea. I still won’t let them keep a pet.)
What weird things have your kids/husband come home with, leaving you scratching your head?
