It was quite the musical weekend as you can see. One of my life long goals was to learn how to play the guitar, so that I could accompany myself singing. Eventually it evolved into wanting to learn so that I could sing and play along with the children in the preschools I taught at and now, it’s become about  playing simple songs while singing with Ellie. Jeff has inspired me with his eagerness to master the banjo. He’s less than a year in and can play so well already.  I felt it was time I tried and I thought maybe something smaller like the ukulele would be just the thing for me. Jeff agreed and even went searching for ukulele’s on his own the other day for me.   He’s going to learn right along with me in hopes of us helping each other.

Everyone got in on the ukulele action though. We brought it to my parents house on saturday for dinner and then my parents came over tonight and we jammed into the evening. It felt so good to be able to play a simple tune and sing along with it. I’m loving the ukulele already. Ellie is enjoying her jam sessions too.

We also enjoyed two lovely homemade dinners this weekend, lots of crafting during naps and swimming lessons and some fantastic “trial birthday cupcakes”.

A very nice weekend indeed. How was yours?

  1. Looks and sounds like an awesome weekend. My little man got a uke from a dear friend for his birthday last year. We have a ton of fun on it, and I have been slowly working on learning to play. I think I might need to find some lessons 🙂

    • Kim, do you have any good online tips or good books I should get in regards to playing? I was trying to find something in relation to Waldorf particularly.

  2. Oh I can just imagine the strumming, the singing and the family time all together. both of mine play piano, and all can play guitar. Whenever there is music time, it gets loud and full!
