A friend of mine posted this quote on FB and I just had to pass it on:
"Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, and children should be taught music before anything else."

Matthew's most favorite thing to do is play with Daddy and his big brothers. He is now strong enough to hold one of the pool noodle lightsabers from the boys' birthday parties. He sits there and giggles as he swings it around a little and the boys gently knock lightsabers with him. Too funny!

Around about our third or fourth song "Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel," which is a tough gospel spiritual, we were all starting to get a little tired and frustrated. As we were waiting for our recording tech to hook up a mic for some drums (yes, our accompanist was multi talented) Tim started changing the words to the bass line to sing about how our week had gone so far. For example: "Can someone change the baby's diaper? Change the baby's diaper? Change the baby's diaper? Yes, yes I will." Things just snowballed from there until we were all taking our parts of the song and changing the words. If we weren't paying for the studio by the hour we probably would have sat down and written out lyrics so that we could record a silly version of the song as an extra track. As it was we kept ourselves thoroughly entertained while we were waiting to record some more.
