The Drums!

Well, after many weeks of waiting, Rhythm finally received his birthday drums!  The bummer- they were supposed to be blue (his favorite color) but the company accidentally sent red.  Not wanting to wait another 7+ weeks, we managed to convince him that red drums were seriously cool and he could still, indeed, be a rockstar!

Everyone asks me "How do you deal with the noise?!"  And honestly, when I first heard that my parents were buying these for him I was a bit concerned!  However, he usually only goes and plays them for a few short periods during the day and he always asks first.  To top it off, he is actually pretty good!  He has a natural sense of rhythm (hence the new online name!) and has always been very musical.  More than just banging on them, he actually tries to keep a beat and he sings a little song he has made up (which changes daily) while he drums.  According to him, he is going to play his drums on American Idol someday!

It is pretty funny also because he usually bangs his sticks together and counts out the beat to get started!  Ya know- "And 1, 2, 3, 4!"  Then he launches into his song!  Afterward he almost always says "Thank you!  Thank you very much!" and then bows!  He is such a ham!

And, of course, Lion Cub likes to get in on a little of the action as well!  My mom insists that we are going to need two drum sets soon, but I think that is where I'll have to draw the line!  Can't one of them take up the guitar?!

It's official!

Alright- I think that I got everything changed over so that feeds will still be delivered and comments will still process!  So, hence forth, this blog shall be located at:

And here's a little button, just to spread the word and the love!  Thanks!

Change is in the air!

There are big changes coming to The World According to R-Man, not the least of which is the blog name (and address, but I'll let you know when that officially happens!)!  From here forward this blog will be known as

The World According to Them 

Why the change you ask?  Well, now that Lion Cub has turned one and will be heading into a little bit of Tiny Tot School, I thought it would be a wise decision to move all of our homeschooling info onto one blog.  Also, this blog will continue to be a family scrapbook of sorts (that I plan to publish into book-form via Blurb), so for simplicity's sake it will just be easier on me to only have to post once about what is happening in our lives instead of twice (once on both boys' blogs).

Another fairly big change is going to be R-Man's online name.  I never have really liked it and finally think I have come up with something far more fitting:


Can you see why?

So, there will be lots of construction on the site for the next little bit as I get a new button made, snaz up the layout, fix all the links for subscriptions, comments, etc... but I will be sure to keep you all posted as that happens!
