Piano Again?

Every Tuesday Abby asks the same question... we can count on it like clockwork. 'Do I have to go to piano?' Every week our answer is the same, ' Yes!' By the look on her face, we know we have given her the wrong answer. 'Fine!' she grumpily says and trudges off to Sister Thorne's house down the street. Is her 13 year old brain thinking that one day we will give up and say no... and suddenly her Tuesdays will become her favorite day of the week instead of the dreaded piano day? She is too good to give up so young, though she promises that she would continue to teach herself (unlike her sisters). To mix it up, she likes to download music off the internet from groups like Cold Play or A Fine Frenzy and practice. Sometimes Kelsie joins in the singing and it's extra fun :)

Oh the days of piano lessons... What happened to the days when 5 am was a great time to practice the piano (or so my parents thought).

Hence the hatred of the dreaded piano lessons begins for another generation... all created of course by well meaning parents :)

Keep playing Abby, you'll never regret it. Besides that, I hear you play beautifully. The Birrell girls are full of talent. Love you girls.
