Why is that: Taking Up an Instrument

Taking up an instrument is an activity many kids do. Why is that? One, because it has been proven to be good for the mind. Two, because you learn how to read music, and Three, because it’s just plain fun!

Why do you want to take up an instrument? Is it to be in your school band or orchestra? Is it for the sake of being able to play? Is it because you enjoy music and playing instruments?  Why do you want to play an instrument? Some houses have a piano or a guitar in them. Finding simple music and learning how to read can be achieved with a few videos. Don’t have an instrument? Schools have band and orchestras and you can rent instruments. Have Neither? Small drums, tambourines, and music sticks are fairly cheap and can be found in most stores. Tell us what instruments you wanna take up or are already playing!

FireFlies

Tonight I was catching fireflies with both of my little brothers. We’d put them in the jars and then release them, what a pretty site they were! As I saw one a few feet a head of me, I dived for it and caught it! Unfortunately, I didn’t catch it to well. You can see in the picture below what went wrong.

Fireflies

Can’t see the picture, or it’s to dark? I caught it in between the palms of my hands, crushing it. My hand glowed for the rest of the night.  Have you ever went around and caught fireflies with friends? Post in the comments below!

Mermaid Mondays

Mermaid Monday , Try to say that five times fast! Mermaid Monday  is where every Monday I post mermaid media, pictures, drawings, poems, stories, and whatever you can think of mermaid related, including today! Here is today’s post-

MERMAID

Leagues, leagues over the sea I sail Couched on a wallowing dolphin’s tail.

The sky is on fire, the waves a-sheen, I dabble my foot in the billows green. In a sea-weed hat on the rocks I sit, where tern and sea-mew glide and beat, and where dark shadows the cormorants meet. In caverns cool when the tide’s a wash, I sound my conch to the watery splash. From out their grottos at evenings beam, the mermaids swim with locks agleam.

– Walter De La Mare –

It’s one of my favorites, I hope you think so too.
