I thought I would take some time to reaquaint you with our family. It also gives *me* an opportunity to reflect a little on my children and the wonderful people they’ve become, and I don’t think you can ever go wrong with that.
Michael is now an amazing 17-year-old young man. He is a junior at our local creative and performing arts magnet school, where he “majors” in instrumental music. Specifically, he plays the cello, although he also dabbles in piano, singing, and composition. Somehow, he’s gone from an 8-year-old boy who whined about cello practice to a 17-year-old who practices for hours on end and has to be told to stop playing at night because other people are trying to sleep.
