James has been saving his money for a trumpet. He has been spending his time researching and looking at trumpets. At church, he would sing the hymns while watching the trumpet players play the hymns in the church orchestra. He has pretty much been eating, sleeping, and dreaming about trumpets. He also was fully aware of just how long it was going to take him to save for the much yearned for instrument - as he had figured it out in math class using his multiplication skills. He had narrowed it down to about two years - pending that it snowed a lot this year and next winter (he shovels snow to make the extra cash).
Imagine his surprise when he opened the box from his Papa and Nana who happened to run across a great deal on a trumpet! Better than that - just look at the picture, as it pretty well reflects the excitement of the evening when he received his yearned for instrument:
(Dad thought he would give the horn a try. This is my favorite picture of James - as this is how he sits when he is relaxed and having a great time!)
You will know which house we are in the neighborhood if you drive down our street in the afternoon. Just listen - you will know!
Thanks for stopping by - I am so glad you did.
