Another Orchestra Concert 12.9.10
Josh had his junior high holiday orchestra concert. He's first chair in the upper orchestra and looks so confident on stage. I can't believe how much more he loves the cello than he did the piano. I also can't believe I went back on one of my first parenting decisions: that my children would play the piano until they could play every hymn in the LDS hymnbook. There are only so many battles I can fight, though, and since he's still learning an instrument, I've decided to let go of the guilt. I think I'll bribe him to learn hymns next summer: $75 if he can learn and perform 10 hymns well by the end of the summer. It's cheaper than a month of lessons, and he ALMOST made it this summer. I think he'd learned seven.
