Trombone player?

Zachary knew he wanted to play the saxophone from about the age of 5. Jonathan was probably younger than that when he decided he was going to be a drummer. And now Benjamin has been telling us for about 2 years that he is going to play the trombone. We've been telling him that he's got a lot of growing to do before he is big enough. Right now a trombone is bigger than he is.

So I was telling a friend of mine (who happens to be a trombone player) about Ben's interest. Today she brought us a slide trumpet that she isn't using, which looks like a mini trombone. Oh, and it's red, Ben's favorite color! He was so excited. I didn't think he would even be able to get a sound out of it, but he did. I think he wants lessons! How did I end up with all these musicians. It makes me happy!

Doesn't he look like he was made to play this?!

Oh and here's your sports update. Jon's Phanatics - lost 0-2. This was a team that previously beat them 1-8, so this was an improvment. Benjamin's Coyotes - lost 6-22. Yeah, they got creamed! But Ben scored his first goal!!!

Love the trombone! Music is so awesome for the kids to learn! I think we both could have a little Jazz band.
