Jeffrey’s Summer Recital 2017 at Forte Academy of the Arts San Diego

Jeffrey bean had his piano recital over the weekend at Forte Academy of the Arts in Vista. ¬†He played Sonatina 1 and Cruella De Vil. Here it is for your viewing pleasure. ūüôā

Jeffrey¬†has been taking once-a-week piano lessons with Ms. Marla Morrison since August of 2012 when he was just 3 and a half years old. He¬†has come such a long way and it’s so cool to go back and watch all of his recital videos (they happen twice a year) and see how he has progressed over the years.

Forte offers all kinds of music lessons and even art lessons. ¬†When we started there we were a homeschooling family and found that Forte¬†helped to round out the kids’ education. ¬†Music is so great for the brain—and for the soul. If you’re looking for¬†private music lessons in north county San Diego (for children and adults alike) we¬†highly recommend Forte Academy of the Arts in Vista, Ca. ūüôā Should you sign up, tell them the Silvas family sent you. ¬†Thanks for reading, friends! I hope you enjoy the video.

Jeffrey bean’s 1st go on a sewing machine

Chloe let Jeffrey bean have a go on her new sewing machine, and not surprisingly, he¬†was a natural too. ¬†He caught on so quickly! ¬†I was his age when I got my first sewing machine, a hand-me-down from my grandma’s tailor shop in Fallbrook. ¬†Sewing is in our blood. ¬†I can’t wait to see how the kids progress, and what beautiful creations they’ll be sewing in the near future. My heart is happy.
