Today Nate and I braved the freezing cold and headed out to the church office. I had a meeting and Nate had drum lessons with his Uncle Billy. Hetee has only one sibling-- his baby brother who is 2 years younger. Belee, or Billy as we call him, is a music teacher. He is extremely talented and works so well with kids. Especially my kids. =)

Billy is teaching Nate to read music and play the drums by notes. Nate is catching on fast and he is enjoying himself. Hetee can read music so he helps Nate with homework and practice. Hetee's family is quite musical. My mother-in-law is a retired music teacher and her father, Hetee's grandfather was a famous composer. I hope at least a little bit of that talent has trickled down to my kids.

I'm so proud of my son. He's turning into a talented, dedicated and sensitive young man. I get tears in my eyes just typing that out.

On the way home Nate told me that he likes being with me. "Even in this cold?" I asked. He replied, "Hanging out with you makes me warm."

Are kids wonderful? I think you just can't go wrong with music lessons. The ability to lead people into the heart of worship with music is an amazing gift.
