Mixin' It Up

Here's my son being good and trying to play the piano with his fingers (as opposed to his fists, feet, or plastic hammer). His favourite song to play is the metronome back beat...thrilling for the first minute, but ten minutes later it can get a bit old *grin*

I'm thrilled having recieved 100% on my first paper for Early Childhood Education. I seriously was hoping for a C, so imagine my joy at 20 out of 20! *pat my back* Part of the reason for taking this class is that I'm working at a preschool, and loving it. The college credits allow me more flexiblity (when I get enough) and a pay raise.

My husband is still working off his batookie doing 17 credits, chaplin's assistant, and apartment manager here at seminary. He just preached his best sermon ever to J. Alfred Smith, and I'm so proud of him!

Yay fall! The rains were so nice...I can't wait for more cold and blustery days. In regards to the game on Eddie's blog The Closest Book:

for G'pa:

"Brahm's use of the cellos in their lyrical and intense register to play the melody gives the other strings an opportunity to play the soft, rapid, triplet accompaniment, and allows the composer to build up to a higher pitch level in the violin's statement of the theme. This second statement, though fuller and more heavily scores sounds much less tense than the original. Certainly Brahms could have initially stated the theme in the violins and followed it with the cellos, but it is the stunning and vibrant effect of the cellos at the opening of the movement that captures the listener's attention and makes the opening so engaging."
