Being one of the elder stateswomen of this blogging world, sometimes I don't have things that are super-cute or that evince "Awwww" as the response to share about my kids. There are not so many firsts any more. It is satisfying to say that, yet again, my 15-year old went to football practice, came home and got his homework done but it is a little less exciting than reporting that a little one was successful at potty training or had a great first day of kindergarten.
Well, today, the 15-year old and his cousin did something that made me so tickled I just had to capture it on video. They both love music and on their own(that's the real excitement) they took a break from the video games and spent a major portion of their day off working on a musical collaboration. I think they spent about 3 hours on this. Sam loves the canon form and he learned this one somewhere. They used our electric piano to lay down additional tracks so they could get three voices, then Sam decided to add the guitar. They got it to the point where they liked it and decided to get dressed up for the final performance. It was so fun to listen to. I just set the camera up on a tripod and let it roll. Here is what we edited it down to. Nobody took their first steps, but the fun of motherhood doesn't end there.
Just so you know, it is about 4 1/2 minutes long, and I feel to apologize for the wacky action sequence in the middle. They are, after all, teenage boys.
