Before your story – our story and a trumpet

There is one thing we have in common – the trumpet…

My father was not difficult to ask and a new trumpet came in to our life. There were a lot of house guests who had to suffer through trumpet concerts in our home:)

I was too young and flunked my test when I tried out for the band but I could join anyway because I had my own trumpet. I never liked to practice so I was never good at it but I had a lot of fun…

We thought it would be a good idea to buy a new one…

This fact annoyed grandpa so this spring he bought a second instrument. It`s cheaper and easier to play. Even I can make it work:) Now we have to inspire the little ones.

Although – this one is still more interested in today`s choice of porridge
