The girls and I have music class every Saturday, and they are learning how to read music and play recorder. Jessica is also taking piano, while Jillian learns to play acoustic guitar.

But their loveliest talents are their voices. Jessica has very good pitch, and is developing a nice falsetto with vibrato. Jillian has an excellent ear for harmony, and sings with clear, strong tones, so pure it brought tears to my eyes the other day listening to her sing for the class.

"The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels....Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah." from Psalm 68
