Doot doot doot

It was a big day in the 4th grade yesterday.

The kids got their recorders.


As Connie put it, "Doot doot doot."

Yep, that's what it sounds like.

Doot doot doot.

And lots of it.

And every time the Captain sees Cooper's recorder, he grabs it and plays the intro to the Star Wars theme. He is quite proud of himself.

All of this musical activity gives me flashbacks to this summer when Cooper was obsessed with his new harmonica.

And he played it for three weeks.


And all he knew was Jingle Bells.

Over and over and over and over.

For three weeks.

Jingle all the way.

And now, the recorder.

The joy overflows.

Big fourth grade doings yesterday also included learning the middle row on the keyboard and so now they can type "without even looking down!"

Oh, and they learned e and i.

So he can type words like dig and hit and leg.

But not doot doot doot.

2 Wanna' ramble too?:

I am totally sending you some ear plugs. There is no more horrible sound on the earth than the recorder.
Man oh man.
