The end of an era...

Spring Break has come and gone with not much fanfare. We stuck pretty close to home which was just as well since the kids tag-teamed being sick over the first eight or ten days. We still managed to have some fun what with all the dinners out, the playdates, the sleepovers, and the what-nots.

There have been some changes around here in the past little while, the most notable of which is the fact that we've stopped doing piano lessons for the time being. In discussing the kids' progress with their teacher, we realised that they were both at the point where they would need to get very serious about their practice regimes to make any forward progress. As it was, we were experiencing a little resistence to the practice schedule and it was either start being piano Nazis or stop lessons for now. I've always believed that learning music needs to be fun and as soon as it becomes a chore, there is no point in pursuing it further. It was sad saying goodbye to Bruce. He did a great job with the kids and they loved him.

To fill the gap left by the end of piano, we are looking at a couple of possibilities. Chloe is interested in taking horse riding lessons and Sam is up for some karate, so we will see how it all pans out.
