Something new

Today we tried something new for Annika's piano lesson - so far Emmett and I have always stayed for the lesson, with me trying to keep him quiet with varying degrees of success.  However, today we went for a walk outside during the lesson, so Annika could have some one-on-one time with her teacher.  I think this will actually be quite beneficial for us all - for Emmett, because he doesn't have to try to stay quiet for half an hour, but mostly for Annika, because she'll have an uninterrupted lesson, plus she tends to open up more when I'm not around.  So far she's been very quiet during her lessons.  She does what the teacher asks, and she'll say yes, no, okay, but not much more than that.  I think this will be good for her, musically as well as socially.

Something else new today - Emmett got a "big boy" bike!  He was very excited to try it out, so we went for a bike ride today after supper.  It took a little trying, but he got the hang of it and we were out for quite a while this evening.

The next "new thing" on the list is a new bike for Annika - she's pretty much outgrown hers!  Then to try without the training wheels....
