This is small potatoes by comparison, but DS13mo was captivated by a brief youtube clip we watched of the London Symphony Orchestra today. I named the instruments as they appeared on screen. A few hours later, when I named the instruments again without offering visual cues, he mimed about a dozen instruments unprompted. He then rummaged through our bookshelves for any books on musical topics, flipped through the pages, and mimed the instruments while pointing and giggling at the corresponding pictures.

That love of learning is so heartwarming! I hope he never loses the ability to see the beauty in everyday life.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
