Welcome back! I have been gone for far too long and now I’m back committed to writing several times a week again it has been a long winter and spring has arrived here in new england with several inches of snow (sigh)
I’m longing to put on my long skirts, flip flops and enjoy the wonderful local food that the summer has to offer! But for now, all I can do it snuggle under a warm blanket with a hot cup of tea. Tonight , the girls decided to play “marching band” one of my favorite activities! Several summers ago, Charlotte and I visited Pentwater with John and his family and enjoyed a weekly local tradition of sitting on the town green listening to the local band. Charlotte marched around during the concert pretending to be in the band. Ever since that trip she has loved pretending to be in a marching band.
Tonight, John dusted off his old trumpet (yes, my husband is musically inclined playing the trumpet, guitar and piano!) and started playing a few songs! Charlotte and Lillian took turns learning how to make noise out of the trumpet and then formed their own marching band! Marching through the dinning room, living room and den the girls played drums and the “kid trumpet” (a paper towel tube). It was such a fun evening watching the girls embrace their dad’s love of music! The “parade” ended with a dance party in the kitchen. What a perfect way to start the weekend!
