This past Saturday was a grand day!
My sister, Susan, & brother-in-law, Mike, were here for a visit. They enjoyed holding Ethan & getting to know him a little better.
Now for another bit of grand news! Susan & Mike had decided a few weeks ago to pass along their baby grand piano to us. They are in the process of selling their home & down sizing to a smaller house. This is the piano that was in our childhood church for many years. It was built in 1934. They purchased it 13 years ago when the church bought a new piano.
We recruited our friend Brad to help unload & set up the heavy piano.
Our old Baldwin piano was moved to Kari & Bobby's house.
The piano looks so elegant & grand in our front room. I discovered that I'm very rusty at the piano playing when I tried to play a few old hymns.
My goodness, it's been many years since I've played! Shame on me!!
I have great plans to practice a little each week until I can play without being embarrassed! Maybe I'll be ready to play some Christmas tunes in December!Susan found some of my old sheet music that I used to play when I was a teenager. I think it will be fun reacquainting myself with the oldies.
I want to say a big thank you to Mike & Susan for being so generous to deliver & present us with this beautiful piano that holds so many memories for our family. We love you!
