Almost sounds like a song name, right?
Today, my sister’s youngest girl turned 2 years old. This would be my youngest niece. (I had to think about that for a second.)
First of all, I can’t believe that I’m old enough for her to be turning two. I love being an aunt, and I love spoiling my nieces and nephews.
My sister’s oldest girl is just learning to play the piano. My sister is teaching her; you can read all about it here.
I went to visit my sister this past summer, and she suggested that maybe I could give Hope her weekly piano lesson. I said it didn’t matter to me either way, but that I would love to do it.
Well, we brought that subject up to Hopey, and she didn’t seem as excited about it. She was worried that I “might not be able to know where she was in her book and be able to catch up.”
My sister and I just exchanged amused smiles and kept quiet. Little did Hopey know that we use the same method books for our teaching.
Now that I’m teaching again back home, I get the privilege of teaching my two oldest nephews. We are having a blast!
Here’s hoping that tomorrow night they practiced their required time so I can give them a piece of candy!
(Oh, and by the way, my sister has this awesome blog called Small Steps, Big Picture – you should check it out!)
