Starting violin lessons

by CJ on 14 April, 2013

C will be starting violin lessons in the fall. So I have already started to gather necessary supplies otherwise it will be a huge expense if I buy everything in September. A friend suggested that I also include a folding music stand on the shopping list so that she has a place to place her music scores during performance. I really hope that C will like her violin lessons. I think that her piano classes will be a big help for her because she is able to read music scores already. Hopefully that will shorten her basic lesson curve.

A new outdoor field

by CJ on 14 April, 2013

Currently C’s school does not have a complete outdoor field for outdoor sports. This year the school managed to raise some fund through the school auction to outfit a proper outdoor field. However due to the crazy wet weather that we have been having, the school has not started on the outdoor field project yet. I was a little disappoingted because I was hoping that they would be able to complete the project before the school ends so that the kids would be able to take advantage of the warmer weather and play outside more. The kids have been stuck indoors too long this winter. But this week I heard from the person in charge that they have already been checking out  aluminumbleachersdirect.com for aluminum bleachers, so there is still hope that the kids will get a nice outdoor field for playtime next month.

The cons of getting older

January 26, 2013

So when a friend talked about buying ekg machines at MedicalDeviceDepot.com, I actually knew what he was talking about. It’s a […]
