Easier Way to Save

College tuition can be expensive so to save money we've started training Nathan to be a concert pianist so he can get a scholarship. Here's how it's going:

Nathan jumped right in by exploring the ins and outs of the piano. 


Fix that posture Nathan!!!

Much better!

You've got to feel the music (we're still working on literal vs. figurative) 

Work on your pedal phrasing!

I think you're getting the hang of it!

"Errr....you want me to play that, do ya?"

All this practice sure is hard work.

"It helps when I stick my tongue out like this."

I think all his hard work is paying off.
We'll be getting scholarship offers in no time.

Teaching a one year old to play the piano is tough. There's got to be an easier way to save.

Grandma and Grandpa Batt

video

My parents are on a mission now so I wanted to show them what Nathan is up to. He took his first steps last Saturday, August 4th. He will only take a few steps at a time but it so fun and cute to watch him learn this new skill! This video shows his many attempts. I'm sure he thinks to himself, "why does my crazy mommy keep moving me back over and over again???" The last one in this video is his best one though...so that's why! Oh and don't mind the box on my head....Nathan will work for what he wants and it happened to be the box...
