Re: NGD(for my daughter)
The Arts are in our genes. I write(nothing published yet) and play everything I can get my hands on. Presently teaching myself:
Congas and Bongos(5 in the air)
and as soon as I score a good starter kit, Drums
Wife is a poet and artist, paints, pencils, charcoals, pastels
Kids get bored, and seeing how much fun we have w/ the arts, they try it all too.
It's all about exposure. I took my kids to GC before christmas, and let em run wild. They played just about everything in the store. You'd think we walked into the Wonka Factory from the looks on their faces. The staff was happy to see us go, I just prayed the whole time that they wouldn't break anything.
