It's hard to be spread out that far and maintain your part in a big space like that. They must have a great teacher. And to be so young. Good for them!

I sang my entire childhood in groups up through college, where I took just enough music to keep my scholarship while I majored in a completely useless subject.

How exciting for Bones!

I do truly hope, for yours and Bones' sake, that he is able to find his niche in life and channel his talents there so he can excel. Hopefully the experience with this school will allow him to do so.

Well officer, it sounded good going by me.

Very happy for you both.

What is cool is watching them live... they are boys. There is fidgeting and an energy. Bones has chosen this path for now... this is what HE wants. I was pushing theater and had to back off. He didn't want theater. He wanted THIS. So... that's where he is and in 7th grade when he can take an elective, he'll take theater or news broadcast or play direction. There is a list of things he can take and he signed up for the most extroverted things... and then said, "Mom, cross of French, Spanish and Creative Writing. NO."

I just think there is potential for some real growth here. He has the sweetest voice. And the choral groups are divided... 6th grade is boys and girls and then when his voice starts to change, he moves into the boys' group.

He left grinning. I hope we have found a home...

So Bones is going to have to wear a badge just like we do at work. Cool.

Question: Will they let him use his iridescent plastic rosary for the lanyard? !!! But its a fashion statement!!!

Just think, in another half-dozen years he will be ready to become a member of Straight No Chaser.

That is very cool! :D

You have provided your boys with such good experiences, Bou! I wish you would adopt me!

Excellent training at that age is a godsend. Wish I had had a competent voice teacher in middle and high school. I hope he will be able to take advantage!
