Today’s Photo-A-Day Challenge is X is for … My choice is X is for Xylophone. Here is Ian many years ago playing a small xylophone at the San Diego Zoo. They have an amazing children’s section with a lot of interactive activities. He really enjoyed this one.
When we were at the zoo that day, Ian had a great time. In addition to this in the children’s section was a petting zoo. He loved petting the goats and was very curious about them. Needless to say at the end of the day, he was very tired and went right to sleep.
Ian loves music and instruments. So the chance to try playing a tune was great fun for him. In this picture, you can see how much he is concentrating. He still today enjoys playing the piano and using items around the house to make music.
This year he is enjoying watching The Voice on NBC. Since much of it is on past his bedtime, we record it for him and watch the next day. He has comments to make about the singers as well as the judges. Ian has a really good ear for music. Of that I am thankful.
Other things that I am thankful for on this rainy day are:
- A boy who enjoys music class
- Listening to Ian sing a favorite song
- Watching and critiquing contestants on The Voice with Ian
- Cuddling on the sofa with Ian and Kirk
- Umbrellas and rain coats so we don’t get soaked
- A garage so I can remain dry after arriving back home
- A pumpkin spice latte
I wonder what other items we can find that start with X today? I will be on the lookout. Have a great day!
