Making the Band

Last night my boys went into their bedroom to play some music. I helped get Kolten set up with a guitar and left them to their NOISY play. About twenty minutes later they emerged with satisfied grins.

"Did you hear us playin' music?" asked Connor.


"Did you like it?"

"I loved it."

"Did it sound good?" chimed Benen.

"It sounded awesome! You boys are soooo good." (A bit of motherly embellishment.)

"We started a band," said Connor.



"Do you have a name for your band?"

"Yup. It's called Fire Heart."

"That's a cool name. How did you come up with it?"

"Well, well, actually...Connor came up with it," confessed Benen. (My little truth teller.)

"Oh. How did you think that up, Connor?"

"Well, I was just thinkin'...and I thought of it."

I sent Chad for the camera. Here are some pictures of the newly formed, one-day-famous band, FIRE HEART.

(I don't know what is UP with our camera, but please forgive the poor quality.)

Here are their rock 'n roll poses:

And their poster pics:

Fireheart, huh? He was thinking and he just thought it up? (That was so darn cute).

You've got to get footage of this on video and post a clip!

Becky - The best part was Benen made up lyrics on the go and came up with two songs! It was sooo funny. Loud, noisy, terribly out of tune, but adorable. Hopefully I'll get some live footage to share. They practiced again yesterday, so I just need to sneak the camera in.

S4J - Thanks! I wish we had a better camera. So many pictures come out pixel-y and blurry. Couldn't be the photographer, could it?? ;-)
