This new game needs a name

I found Jack playing this game yesterday. He had to get the balloon in the wastebasket with the hockey stick. He just played and played. It looked like a lot of fun. I wonder if it was fun enough to ever be played again.

Everybody's Doin' It!

Playing the guitar, that is. Mark gives lessons to Sam and Jack. They seem to be catching on a little, but of course, they are not big fans of practicing.

Mark's taking lessons too. He found these online jazz guitar lessons. He pays $20 a month, and he has access to the whole site, can go at his own pace, and go through as many lessons as he wants and is able to. When he feels he is ready to play the assignment for Jimmy Bruno, he sends in a video recording of himself. Then several days later he gets a video response from "Jimmy" as we call him around here as if he's our good buddy. It's fantastic, and he is learning so much and really improving. I'm proud of him.
And then there's Joel. Always playing, always singing. With all the guitar playing going on in our house, it's probably not surprising.
