Piano Player.

I wish I could bottle the excitement he is feeling today about his piano lesson. He is on the final song in book two and he can hardly wait to move on to the next. Truthfully, I don't think I have ever seen him this excited about anything. Ever. I'm so thankful for his incredible piano teacher.

A Fun Tuesday Afternoon

Had a beautiful afternoon with these two young men. First, lunch and chess at Short Pump Towne Center. And then, it was an honor and privilege to be with these two as they filled Operation Christmas Child Boxes. Then, a trip by the craft store and Griffin selected Christmas ornaments he will be personalizing and have available in Griffin's Workshop. And finally a stop by Gelati Celesti for a special treat!

Mom Of A Country Boy

You know you are the Mom of a country boy when you come back to the car to find this on your dashboard and it doesn't phase you one bit. Actually, the words from my mouth were, "oh, where did the snake skin come from.". I think Griffin and his friend Christian were trying to scare me.
