All about Eli

DSC_0029

I know I have posted about Eli and his guitar before, but yesterday, Eli said to me "Why don't you ever post about me on the blog?" So this post is all about Eli.

This boy loves his guitars. And we think he could be quite talented at it. He never complains about going to his classes. He loves his new teacher. He has learned more in the first two months of lessons this year than he did at the school he went to last year.

He is often in his room practicing. Depending on his guitar choice of the day, this can sometimes be VERY LOUD. But we don't even care. We love the sound of his music coming from his room.

For his birthday he asked for a microphone as well, so that he can both play and sing. He has big plans for a band with some of his friends.

This boy is always hot or cold. One extreme or the other. But more and more, he is pure joy. He makes me laugh on a daily basis. He has confidence in himself. He is high energy. He is always willing to figure things out and not give up. I think these characteristics will take him far in life.

So amazing to watch the talents being discovered in our kids as they grow up, isn't it? Maybe Kylar can play the keyboard in the band ;)
