Both of our boys enjoy music. This violin is the latest addition to the house. I've always thought that it's a strength of home ed. that you can cater to kids' strengths and passions so easily. Our academic work takes much less time than it would in a class setting and there are generally less stresses on the boys. This frees up time and energy for what they love. Struan is now playing 3 instruments and needs to practise each of them every day. If he was at school I don't think he would be able to and I think I may be baulking at him having so much on his plate at such a young age.
Fortunately, as it is there was plenty of time left today for eating cake, snuggling up with a hot water bottle to read Harry Potter, and this...
So pleased Struan is playing Gran Cottee's instrument.ReplyDelete
