beginnings of the violin
Kelsey had her first violin lesson yesterday. She enjoyed it, so I hope this is the start of something good.
When I was pregnant with her, my dad bought her this violin. We didn't know if we were getting a boy or a girl, and my dad said whatever it was going to be, he wanted to hear fiddle music played when he was an old man. So I have kept this violin in the back of my closet for 9 years or so. When Kelsey turned 8 years old, I took this 1/2 size violin in to get it checked out and restrung. They said it was amazing and in pristine condition. That tickled me pink! All summer I have been looking for a violin teacher that wouldn't break me, and I found one a month or so ago.
So here we go! Hopefully my dad will enjoy some good music soon!
