What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

Violin Lesson Update

By Chelsa

(See post on June 20th before reading this one) We are moving right along on our lessons. I'm starting to feel comfortable holding and playing with the bow in my right hand. (I'm left-handed and learning to play right-handed) Thankfully, Samantha's decided to join us and she's been coming for about 4 weeks. Our teacher is awesome. We can all play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star in 6 different variations, Lightly Row, and part of Boil Them Cabbage Down. It is so much fun playing with my girls!

Something that has really inspired us came from my parents. They went to Branson, Missouri on vacation this summer and brought back a video of The Duttons. They were voted the best show in Branson. They are a family band who plays about every kind of instrument, but focuses on the fiddle/violin.  Their daughter Amy was voted the best fiddler/violinist in Branson for the past 5 years. We have played that DVD over and over and over again. That video inspires us so much that now Steele wants to join in the fun.  Maybe we'll end up being a family band, too!
