Tommy has taken up piano. Last night he had his first lesson. He was so excited I thought he might burst. When I dropped him off at the teacher's house he was a bit nervous. She immediately put him at ease having him pick out a sticker for his book, introduced him to the family dog, and then got down to business.
When I came back to get him the look on his face was hard to read. I couldn't tell if he was thinking, "Get me out of here!" Or, "Why are you here already?" Turns out it was the latter. He was shocked and not happy that I was back so soon. He asked me later why the lessons can't be five hours long.
At breakfast I caught him practicing his finger taps and afterwards he went directly to the piano to do his 4 "songs" he has for homework.
I'm so proud of him. Let's hope his excitement continues!
