case in point.


the day after i wrote the post about buddy's creativity, he constructed an entire drum set, including the high hat cymbals from paper. it was all his idea - following a yo gabba gabba episode about instruments - and he enlisted jo jo (eva's husband who is staying with us) to help.

jo jo has been staying with us for close to a month.  he's here trying to get employment as a driver, but has to go through a course to get his license.  while he waits, he helps eva.  and us. the kids love having him around to play with.  and eva runs a tight ship, getting him whipped into shape to help her around the house.  he's quickly become buddy's sidekick in all things crafty.

have a look.

the chopstick drumsticks work quite well.  now, just because they're made from paper doesn't mean they are any less booming.  because they're made from paper, however, they will only last a few days.  and so, we're dealing with the drumming.  just after their drum sets were finished, they composed their first duet.  a lullaby.  on the drums.  for cally.

it was lovely.  and booming.  not your typical lullaby.  but, cally did sleep through it.

this is just too fabulous! and the pictures made my day!! thanks for your comment on my blog too - i really wish we could catch up in person for a coffee (and perhaps a bit of drumming entertainment!) in the meantime, i'm really glad facebook and blogs have put us back in touch! big hug to you and the young musicians! x
