Last winter, our sweet friend Katie came to babysit our kids one evening and recorded a song with them using garage band on my macbook (i heart my mac). It was so sweet and the kids thought it was very cool to have made a song.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, as I am getting out of the shower I hear Landon pounding on his drum set (mom have we thanked you recently for that drum set). As I come over to talk to him about not beating on his drums I notice the macbook sitting by the drums. The macbook which he had unhooked, carried up to flights of stairs, and had now set on the floor next to him.
When he finishes playing, I ask him what he was doing. He nonchalantly tells me he is recording a song on rock band (otherwise known as garage band). Obviously he paid close attention to Katie Wilson when she recorded their song. He knew exactly what to do in order to make a recording and adjust settings. I was amazed! Of course I was so amazed (and cracking up at how serious he was about this whole deal) that I didn't get a video or a picture.
That is until last week, when he decided to make another recording. He has some vocal recordings that are quite hilarious that I may try to upload soon. Making songs on the computer is one of his all time favorite activities right now. He asks to make a song every.single. day.
