Drum solo

When Aleck was 5 years old, in the summer of 2007, he recorded this drum solo as a birthday present for a friend. Now we can share it with the world!

A great way to start the day

When I got a new laptop computer in the summer of 2007, I convinced Aleck and Rhaena to use the headset microphone to make some recordings. I'll post some of them over the next few days... I've had a great time revisiting that time as I've been getting the files ready to post. Even though this was recorded only 18 months ago, it's a clear reminder of how quickly the kids are growing.

This is a favorite daily prayer and table grace that Aleck brought to our family from his preschool. Rhaena made this recording when she was almost three years old. Enjoy!

Here are the subtitles, if your early Rhaenish is rusty:

Thank you, God, for this new day
And for the time to work and play.
Please be with us all day long
In every story, game, and song.
May all the happy things we do
Make you, our Father, happy too. Amen.
