Ever since American Girl released the musical instruments I have had my eye on the cello. I love the cello - can't play but truly appreciate those that can. Cello music an be haunting, peaceful, and even rocking! (Check out the Cellonator on YouTube.) Most recently Tori Amos and RUSH have been accompanied by strings on their tours. Anyway, the cello set was always a bit out of reach, but the latest sale offered it at half price bringing it under $30 even with shipping. It arrived yesterday!

Practice, Practice, Practice
(lilting, medium-toned, scale - with a squeak here and there)
Kaya! Can you come help with the new Lego set?
Not until I am finished practicing.
You're getting much better.
Thanks! I get better with practice.
Okay. I'll get the others.
(Turns page and does one more exercise)
Now, I just have to put it away.
Lock it up.
And tuck my music book away.
Cool! Let's take the pieces over and get started.
(bags opening and pieces being dumped on the floor)
Let's get all the pieces sorted so they are easier to find.
I've got the instructions.
I've put Emma together already!
Not quite as good as when we did the Guggenheim, but not bad.
Have you seen the long yellow piece?
No. Meatloaf, what are you doing? That tickles!
(lauging) Meatoaf found it.
Oh! (giggling) Sorry, here you go Kaya.
The map board is almost finished.
I have the picnic table almost finished.
I'm starting the car.
The passenger section is here.
Let's put them together. Looks good.
Back bumper ready to go.
Does the purse go here?
According to the book it does?
I think there should be the third brake light instead.
Yes, that's better! Done!
- Do you play an instrument? If yes, which one? If no, would you like to? Which one?
- Do you like building with Legos? If yes, do you like the generic sets or the defined model sets better?
