Greetings from the land of week-long violin camp! The small people and I have set up shop in a tiny town here in rural Vermont for the week and are pretty much all Suzuki all day long (with a bit of fiddle thrown in for good measure) until Friday. The internet here is sketchy at best so I'm unlikely to post again before we return home, but I did want to say a quick hello and let everyone who is doing the Book Along know that I've updated the chapter book page with a note about our own reading so far. So, hop on over and let us know what you are up to! I'll be updating the picture book page at some point this week.
I suspect I'll have lots of thoughts about kids and music and discipline and appreciation of beauty and all of that good stuff when this week is done. In the meantime, if you didn't see it before, you might like to take a peek at this post that I wrote for Rhythm of the Home a few months ago (it's where this photo was first published). It explains a whole lot about why I have decided to brave long days of lessons and a complete disruption of baby routines for the sake of Mariam's music education. Because there are a lot of mosquitoes here, so resolve is not an insignificant factor, let me tell you.
