On your mark, get set, go!

We had some friends over for breakfast one morning and our son Alan gave a lovely performance of Old King Wenceslas, Ode to Joy, and Old MacDonald. They were impressed that Alan has only been playing for a few months.

One highlight that made me giggle on the inside was when our friend Bill pulled out his guitar to play along with Alan. Alan started them out…,”on your mark, get set, go!” And off they went! Thank you for getting Alan off to such a fantastic start [with his saxophone lessons]!
