The Entertainers

The boys are getting ready for their piano concert tonight. Son 2 will be slightly reluctantly playing 'The Entertainer' and Son 1 will be fulfilling a long ambition by playing something really impressively classical - he's been admiring the 'big kids' who play impressive pieces for years, and now it's his turn! You can also see on the piano a photo of them playing a duet (only one fight while rehearsing, honest) at one of the outdoor summer concerts a few years ago. But we also have photos of their piano débuts - Son 1:
and Son 2:
Aww! We can only tell the difference between them because we know we'd actually managed to put that picture up by the time Son 2 was born! Ben loved to play the piano with one of them on his lap. I was going to say it was a good start in the world of music, but in fact they started before they were born, because I was in a choir and I often felt them reacting to the music then...

That is so lovely! What gorgeous photos of your babies with their Daddy. I hope their concert goes well. Will you be able to see them through your proud tears? Good luck boys.

Those photos are lovely, so special. The Entertainer is very special to me and my sister, it always reminds us of our grandmother. When all is cousins were together at family "dos" when we were little, we all used to dance round the sofa to it hee hee x

I am catching up on blog reading, so I hope the concert went well. The pictures are lovely. I know once my son jumped inside me when I went into church one Sunday and the organ started up, slightly surreal.
