We're Bach...

It seems important to start this post by acknowledging that this blog isn't getting much attention anymore. There are lots of reasons for that, but the top two are probably that I'm not making time for it and that as the boys get older I find that they're no less entertaining to me, but it feels like I always need to make sure that any story I share publicly is a laughing with them, not at them, event.

With that said, there are things that go down around here I would like to share with a small audience, and document for posterity, where Facebook and Instagram don't feel quite like the right vehicles. That brings me pretty much full circle to the old blog. 

Andrew has been working hard to learn Bach's Toccata in D Minor on the piano, and his teacher suggested we might try to have him play it on an organ once he had it down, because that's really where it shines. Despite the fact that Lawrence feels suffocatingly small and familiar some days, you do have to love that if you want your kid to be able to play a beautiful pipe organ on a Wednesday afternoon you can make it happen here with two emails. And, that kid can have an audience of several family members plus his teacher with no begging. 

Without further adieu, a link to Andrew playing the organ yesterday follows.  (If I'm going to post here with any regularity, I can't be messing with embedding videos. I get enough of that infuriating type of detail at work. Sorry.) 


Thomas thought he was going to get out of having a lesson because of this little recital yesterday, but he had a chance to play also and did a little improv on the organ bench, which is so totally Thomas.

That was super, Andrew! I'm so glad that your mom shot the video of your performance, complete with sound. Thanks for sharing it with us. I love that piece!!!

I'm a few months late on this, but WOW!I'm so impressed. And kicking myself for letting Z give up piano. And yes, I showed him this video so he too can feel my pain. It didn't work. :/
