Girl Singer in Cast

Might I kvell a bit?

Back in January, the girlie wrote out her New Year's resolutions. There were only three: learn to ride a "hourse", learn to sing better, form a band. Being indulgent parents who needed to find things to keep her occupied during the summer, we sent her to horseback riding camp for a week, and signed her up for a week of rock and roll camp at a music school in town. All resolutions accounted for!

For the first day of rock star camp, she was to bring in a list of five favorite songs; she picked six:

  • Respect / Aretha Franklin
  • Bad Romance / Lady Gaga
  • Girls In Their Summer Clothes / Bruce Springsteen
  • Back In The USSR / The Beatles
  • Friend of the Devil / Grateful Dead
  • While My Guitar Gently Weeps / The Beatles

I love this list. I think we're bringing her up right.

Unfortunately, the poor chicken broke her arm on Saturday, ice skating. Yes, ice skating in August. It's a pretty minor break, and she's only in the cast until just after Labor Day, but still. She was a real trooper about it. Also, I'm really glad she didn't fall off a horse last week, because that might not have been such a minor little break. And, her "instrument" for rock star camp is voice, which is also good, 'cause I think she'd have a hard time learning guitar, drums or piano with that cast on her right arm. I'm sure she'll have no trouble wielding a microphone.

Yikes! Hopefully it's not bothering her too much.

That is a GREAT list! Hope she heals up quickly :-)

Ouch! Hope the healing proceeds apace. She seems like the sort to make the best of what life provides. What an awesome list.

Rock star camp sounds awesome. Actually, it all sounds fun, except for the arm break. Quick healing, I hope!

Bah! Thankfully most of her activities won't be curtailed, except for the biggie, swimming. My arm was broken at that age, also, thanks to my big brother trying to ride me like a horse.

Sorry about the arm, but loving the confidence!

Oh no! I sprained my wrist ice skating in May - it happens! I'm glad she can still rock 'n' roll.

That's a lot of summer fun. Bummer about the arm, but it happens.

You are indeed bringing her up right with the music.

Poor kid, though! So glad she can still enjoy rock star camp.

Oh dear...poor thing. My daughter broke her arm(s) during two consecutive summers. On the first day of vacation. Niiiice. The music is awesome! Definitely raising her right! If she wasn't doing vocal, she could always be a percussionist and bang her arm on something!

That last one was actually written by George Harrison, though performed by the Beatles as well as others.
