It's all about having fun...

The end of April through May is the busiest time of year in our house.  I can't imagine how I would handle having more than one child to keep tabs on.  This year has not been as busy as last year but we still seem to have one thing after another - literally.

Last Thursday we were the entertainment at the Senior Citizens lunch.  Our guitar teacher disguised a rehearsal for our recital as a "performance".  The Seniors seemed to appreciate it and I didn't feel overly out of place being the oldest student.  Right after the event at the Senior Center, Austin and I had to rush back to his school so that he could participate in a triathlon.  Austin's leg was the swimming.  He didn't do too shabby for a kid that has never had a swimming lesson - at least that he remembers.  When he was 6 months old we took a mommy and baby swimming class. 

Finishing his laps!

Poor kid! I think he thought he was going to die.

He was nice enough to let mom hang out with him until their runner crossed the finish line.  He never did find out what their time was but he has a good time and really that's all that matters.

So, I totally LOVE that you are taking guitar lessons! It's the Nielson part of you. Remember Grandpa playing his banjo? All those old Nielson family parties and often withn music. My Dad and Bud on guitar, Steve on Drums, Grandpa on the banjo and Debbie singing. Ah, memories. I wish I were mature enough back then to have really appreciated those experiences.
