Gary was on "Song" tonight, and was pleased to choose the one Primary song we know on the guitar.
The family has been taking lessons for about a month.
We now own three guitars, and we put them to use to accompany "I Am a Child of God".
I have decided I love the guitar.
It always has a nice sound, even when you're messing up,
and from day one, we were playing "songs".
One chord songs, yes, but you feel so successful!
Next, we had a lesson on developing out talents.
(Reinforce the positive!)
Daddy gave a mini-course on hammering nails.
Learning to do this is on their list of "Disneyland Goals",
and it was a "talent" they could all learn in one evening.
Did I ever tell you I once won a nail-hammering contest?
It was the same day I almost killed myself with a nailgun.
We do not own a nailgun.
They give me the shivers.
Gary was very good at hammering.
He's had lots of practice
on the roof of Uncle Paul's truck.
He's kind of grown out of that stage now.
We are all relieved.
You may not be totally entertained
seeing my children hammer nails,
but we were.
And then we had treat
and went to bed.
