A little over a week ago, Ben got his first guitar. It was a big hit, right from the start. Usually when I go to pick him up from daycare, he's so involved in playing that it's like pulling teeth to get him out the door. But every day last week he marched right up to me and said, "Let's go home so I can play my guitar!" We'd get home and I'd still be down in the kitchen fixing a snack, and he'd already be upstairs rocking out.
As you know, if you've been following this blog, Ben is a serious John Denver fan. On our greatest hits collection, there's a track where John Denver covers The Band's song "The Weight." This led us to watch YouTube videos of The Band's original version, plus their various other hits. That explains Ben's song line-up for this impromptu gig.
