How One Piece of Art Changed our Family Car Rides and Even my Daughter’s Grades
As my daughter steps out of the car for school, I see her clamoring around to find her flute. She shines a smile at me as she informs me of her next performance. She is currently enrolled in her junior high school’s choir, band, and theater program. Without it, I know her school experience would be very different. She loves school. The music program is her biggest reason for that enjoyment. During difficult state budget cutbacks, I get angry when there is constant chatter about cutting musical programs in the public schools.
I just saw my grandson today. He’s 15 months old and recently got his very first haircut. He looks like a young boy way too soon. I swear just five minutes ago, he was just a newborn with eyes wide open looking at the world for the very first time. He’s walking now and quietly says “what’s that” when he sees something new. I just can’t get enough time with him.
