Children's Sympony

This morning Micah, Beatrix and I went to a special sympony that Palm Beach Atlantic University put on free for children. A friend told me about it a couple of weeks ago and it sounded like something that Micah would really enjoy. He has been talking alot lately about wanting to learn to play the drums and the guitar. I thought it would be the perfect way to show him alittle more about music. Afterwards he informed me that he now wants to learn first the guitar, second the drums and third, pointing to his three fingers, the trumpet.
They had a full orchestra. The conductor went around to the 4 sections of the orchestra and talked about each of them, the percussion, the strings, the woodwinds and the brass. The groups demonstrated their various sounding instruments too. Then they played several songs all together and the kids that take lessons at the college did a demonstration as well. In the middle of one of the songs, Micah yelled out "Look Mommy there's God!"
And as you can see there He is. Ha haa! That caused some laughter from me.
Bea is in the sling as usual and slept through most of it. Except the kettle drum demonstration. She jumped during that.
Micah wanted to bring his noculars so he could "see the music." It was a really fun morning!
