Coupla quick Bennyisms and some Beethoven

Sorry it's been so long -- the semester is in full swing and I've been a little busy.

Bennyism #1:  Neil walks into the room.  Ben looks up from his tablet and says, "E-reader is a very relaxing icon."

Bennyism #2:  This morning Ben was searching frantically for some toy and couldn't find it.  Neil asked him for a description:  "It's metal, and it's a rectangular prism."  [Turns out it was one of his toy baking dishes.  They studied various three dimensional shapes in school last week.]

Remember how Ben was inspired to learn how to play Ode to Joy on the piano?  It's coming along very nicely, thank you.  Neil shot this quick video the other evening during piano practice.  We're still working on the ending, but still, you gotta be impressed.
