Birthday Boy with a Birthday Banjo


Felix has been interested in a banjo for a while now. I suggested he wait til after his birthday to buy himself one. I hope he didn't suspect . . . .


It is nice to hear an entirely new sound around the house. I love this, we all do!

Time to update the kids' ages Anna? Happy birthday Felix, goodness you look like Giles in the second photo.

Who doesn't like banjo?? That will be my husband's next stringed instrument. Thanks for sharing this happy post!

Farrah, he's teaching himself! His how-to book was written in the 60s (I think it's Pete Seeger) and has great references to trying to get ahold of an ancient home reel-to-reel film camera so that you can watch some banjo-playing instructional movies.

Thanks for the reminder, Rose! :)

What a great birthday present.

Has Felix ever heard any classical banjo music? We found a CD of it at the library--really cool!

Happy birthday Felix.. What talented children you have ... And a wonderful talented mama.

Very cool! My youngest son is teaching himself the piano. I've forgotten since I was taught 20 years ago. Music is very much if you don't use it, you lose it. I hope Felix enjoys his new "toy"!

Love it! The banjo is a great instrument to learn to play. It always makes me happy to hear--I guess that's due to my Appalachian roots. Happy birthday to Felix, and have fun learning to play!!

Anna, I haven't popped in to your world for a long while, but now that I have am excited to see Felix with a banjo. Carter and Elijah play as well. I really love the sound of one.
