The Sound of Music

On Tuesday, we attended Ammon's choir concert. Once again, they really did a great job. They sang "Gloria Canon" by Haydn, "over the Sea to Skye" by Joyce Elaine Eilers and "Joshua Fit the Battle!" arranged by Jill Gallina. They joined the concert choir and chamber singers at the end to sing "River Song."
There was definitely a beautiful sound of music!

And then........ drumroll please......
Ammon earned enough money by doing chores to buy.....


I think he has listened to it at least five times. He told me today that several songs in the movie have great life lessons. Those would be "I Have Confidence," "Climb Every Mountain," and "My Favorite Things."
He hasn't stopped talking about this movie or stopped singing the songs since he got it.

We definitely have the sound of music in our household right now.

Ammon has been a little lazy lately with his blog. I decided to share something funny that he said the other day.  In our conversations last weekend, he was lamenting the fact that Lance and David had moved away. I told him that after Kevin graduates, he and Gillian may move away as well. He looked confused and asked me why. I told him that Kevin might have to find a job in a different state and they would move wherever they got a job. Ammon seemed to accept it for that moment. The next day he said, "Let me get this straight. First David moves. Then Lance moves and now you're telling me that Gillian might move too?" "Yes, that's what I'm telling you," I replied.  Then Ammon said, "Why does everybody exploit me?!"

In the middle of my laughter, I got out of him that he thought exploit meant abandon or neglect. Nope- new word, new meaning.

Guys, every time you move, you abandon him. I'm glad you are not exploiting him.
