The kids didn’t have any music lessons this summer. Even if we wanted to enroll them to a Saxophone class, to learn another instrument, we decided not to, so they can concentrate on other things to learn. So no need to buy a new Saxophone, ligature and caps. Instead, we bought them new swimwear, and swimming accessories. We also had the kids learn more home chores that can be beneficial for their growth and independence.
I find it amusing that the kids themselves love the chores. No need to enroll them in baking classes or cooking classes. It’s all about passing on what we have learned from our parents and grandparents, to them.
