"Your greatest contribution to the Kingdom of God may not be something you do, but someone you raise." ~Andy Stanley

July 3, 2010

The day finally came!

After saving up:
part of his Christmas money, all of his birthday money, dog-sitting for a neighbor AND selling his DS Lite with 5 games on Craig's list...

Andrew was able to buy a new ELECTRIC GUITAR today!

Hooray! Six months of waiting and saving isn't easy for a guy who is 11 and it is quite an accomplishment! I'd say he's a real musician! : )

I don't know a thing about electric or acoustic guitars but I know that Andrew and Dad have been talking about humbuckers, and HSS's, Fender Strats, Mexican Strats, sunbursts and a whole lot of other things in earnest for hours almost daily. They are really cute. I just smile and nod.
And I'm not sure who is MORE excited today, Andrew or Dad.

-Have I mentioned my hubby's motto? It is 'You can never own too many guitars' and thanks to my parents he has the t-shirt to prove it. LOL (in this room alone, I can see 5 of them)

So, there are two happy guitarists around here who are going to jam all weekend, I'm sure.

~Proud of you, Andrew! That took a lot of self control and patience. So, glad the Lord blessed you with a great deal and a beautiful guitar! : ) Love ya!

I am very proud of your boy ... and you too. So many parents these days just give everything to their kids. It is so great to work and save and meet your goal. And to learn that at a young age is a gift indeed.

I'll bet he masters that guitar in no time. Well done!!
