    So beautiful. Do all your children play? That's something that I wanted for our children but so far only our oldest has taken any lessons. We'll probably start the 2 little girls in the fall.
I wish our son had been more interested--he tried guitar for a little while but had a lot of trouble with it because his hands and fingers are very large. I suppose he probably would have had problems with the piano too.
Thank you for taking the time to post these videos.

    How nice for me! I got to listen to your other son while drinking my morning coffee and I just got on now to unwind and read a few blogs before going to bed. Thanks for sharing your wonderful sons, it brightened my day. They both have a very nice touch with the keys.

    Joseph has been playing for about 7 years... the lady turning the pages has been his teacher for the past 3 years. He wants to go for a double major (5 year program) Bible and Music.

    Wow! That is just plain wonderful piano playing! I could listen to something like that forever, I think.
Thank you so much for letting us hear this great music.
Are you their teacher?

    Fabulous! I imagine you've had many, many hours of happy listening in your home while they practice. What a lot of natural talent he has, especially neat to see in a male. Is he going to major in music?

    emoticon Nice looking boys! I want to learn how to play accompliment style with cords because some of the little churches we go to have no piano player and i'm 58 years old to old to learn the hard way! I play a guitar so i know when to change cords but i don't know if i can do the piano or not. Do you have any suggestions that can help me learn a quick and simple method? If so let me know i only play gospel! emoticon

    The McDonald House has been a real blessing to some of our friends. I was hoping for an audio clip---what did they play?

    Piano is such a great thing for anyone to know. We have been without a piano player at church for quite a while now, although some of the young people are taking lessons. Someone who can play piano can really use it for the Lord. Thanks for posting the pictures.

    You must be so proud of them. What a great thing to do! We support Ronald McDonald House too. My nephew and sister had to stay in one many times ( I stayed with them once) when he was going through treatment for leukemia. It was a nice place to use. Tammy

    Thanks for the great example. Instead of something coming up and hitting stop, we need to hit pause and start up where we left, or start over again. Either way, we keep going forward. Thank you for the inspiration.

    It's so important to be thankful for everything, even our trials, for it is through trials that we grow.

I did well on my first and second days of starting over, too. And thank you for your encouragement.
