This is what we pack for music lessons each week. Actually, now that I'm looking at the picture I realized Clare's bag is missing. Anyway, this includes 1 guitar, 2 laptop computers, a snack or two for each of us and various school books, piano/guitar paraphernalia and a few non-essential things that Therese always tosses in at the last minute. ( Everything but the kitchen sink, as the saying goes!) But, hey, we're at Linda's for 2 1/2 hours every Monday morning.
I must say that while we're there everybody works hard to get their school work done because that means they can skip math on Friday's. Kind of a weird treat, but they like it. When school work is out of the way and they've had their turn at the piano (or guitar in Andrew's case), they can play quietly in the basement. Last week they found this little gem in the toys at Linda's..
and they just had to bring it home to share the joke with the rest of the family. Not sure who put the toilet paper next to it...nice touch, though! Shhh, don't tell anyone but there's been talk that this would be a fun little item to greet Grandma and Grandpa with when they return from AZ. (I won't tell...if you won't!)
P.S. Sad little twist to this story, Dan and Linda have sold their house and are moving. WAHHHH!
