Alex is currently about 2/3 of the way through the “30 Day – Can’t Wait to Play – Guitar Challenge,” a little program Bill came up with to reward Alex for practicing every day for thirty days straight.
At the end of the 30 days, he’ll get a little trophy. Bill’s idea. I hope he doesn’t plan on giving Alex a trophy every thirty days. That’s a lot to dust.
Alex is good about practicing – he genuinely enjoys playing guitar – but he doesn’t always remember to on his own.
Sometimes Bill will practice along with him – a lot of the pieces Alex has been learning include a teacher accompaniment – and yesterday was one of those days.
I got one good shot (well, relatively good), and then I went away because it’s distracting to have your mom standing there with a camera.
Oh, and see that framed picture up on top of the desk? That’s Alex when he was only three and a half. My tiny little chubby-faced blond boy with a bowl cut.
Yeah, time does fly.
