Monday, a large package arrived addressed to "Seth J. Logo". (I knew it was coming but didn't tell) He opened it with the help of his two very excited brothers and literally jumped for joy when he realized it was the promised guitar from his Papaw!
He immediately noticed the frets don't have stickers on them like his little Act One does, he also noticed headstock was different. That's when I pointed out that the strings were nylon, not steel! He sat down and started strumming to see if he could "hear the difference".
He could... the guitar was majorly out of tune! (probably from the transit) LOL! He had Tristen pull his guitar out so he could tune it properly (he hasn't developed the "ear" for that yet). Once it was in tune, Seth sat down and did his guitar practice for the day on his new guitar! I asked him what his favorite thing about it was and he said, "These letters, are they Australian?" pointing at the letters JLG on the back. When I explained they were his Papaw's initials he said, "Oh, yeah, that's my favorite part!" *awe*
Seth asked Garrett, "Since I have a new bigger guitar, do you want my old one so you can learn too?" Garrett accepted with a huge grin, then they all started strumming their guitars... Tristen, little teacher that he is, showed Garrett the proper way to do E and G, Garrett was ecstatic!
I guess Hayden felt left out because before I knew it, he had busted out his little toy guitar he got at Christmas! It was great, we all had so much fun!
Thank you Papaw, so much for the guitar and again to you and Nana, thanks for the lessons, I haven't seen Seth so excited about going since the very first lesson (before he learned that it required homework... practicing)! What a blessing this is to me! With all of my heart, thank you both!
