Looks like we have a budding Beethoven in our midst. John Michael loves to sit at the piano and pound away, but sometimes it's less about pounding and more about hearing the soft rhythmic harmonies and striking disonants, carefully choosing his notes. In the first image you can see his thoughtful, quiet composure and in the 2nd, his exuberant "anything goes" excitement. Finally, the composer is satisfied with his masterpiece. Sister Anna has been playing for 3 years now and is a great inspiration. These are actually snaps taken from video clips. In the background, my son, Nicolas, is playing jazz saxophone. Have a musical day.
I've been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Doug. I'm a Catholic SAHM to 5 children. Our 4th child, John Michael, was born in November 2007, and has opened us up to the amazing world of Down syndrome. We are grateful to God for the blessings He's given us and the journey He's put us on. When I'm not spending time with my family, I sing with RSVP, an amazing vocal group, educate on Down syndrome, have my own health and wellness business, and blog about our life.
