For almost two years our little Kylie has been wanting to play violin. With so much going on and how hard it was for Lily to do the piano I have been hesitate to let her play until she was old enough to do it on her own. Well the asking has gotten more frequent and finally we decided for Christmas we would let her start to learn in January. Now that we have gotten back in school she is going to start this Thursday so yesterday we went to get sized for the one we would rent. As the guy brought the violins in out of the case her eyes lit up. She had been waiting since Christmas to come and do this. Unfortunately they didn't have the right size and we had to go somewhere else. We walked out and she said, "don't I get one?" Then we headed to the next place. As they fit her she glowed with an excitement that only I can recognize from Kylie. She doesn't tend to be loud with it, but I can see it all over her. She insisted on carrying the case out, then she buckled the violin in to the seat belt next to her. The whole way home she asked if she could get it out and I told her she had to wait. As soon as we got home she wanted to hold and look at it and even try to play a little. She did this three different times throughout the night. Today she even asked to practice! This kid is so excited and I am glad that she is looking forward to learning something new!
