The picture below shows the scene I woke up to this morning after a visit from Ely. He and Christina and Damian were playing music together last night: Ely on violin, Damian on stand-up bass, and Christina on piano. (Ely and Christina were also playing together on the piano.) For me, this is one of the things that distinguishes the Lester family. We play music together for fun. Getting out instruments is what we ultimately do when the family converges. There's nothing I like better than listening to these music sessions. The current trend seems to be classical music, which is a sumptuous treat for my hungry ears and heart. The dream, as Ely calls it, is to have a string quartet. So we have our feelers out for a cello. (Ely just bought a viola, hoping Ben might get on board.) I would listen all night to our boys playing chamber music together.

If there is one regret I have in raising my sons, it's that I did not get them music lessons of some kind. I know we could never be the Lester family, but I wish we could play music together.

Oh what sweet sounds with some of your kids home.
