My husband is the oldest of seven children. His two youngest sisters are still living at home, where Mom is their full-time teacher. Two of his siblings are in college, one is in the workforce, and one is a stay-at-home mother.My in-laws also run a home business, so their lives are busy. When we go back to visit, we can always expect to be called on to run at least one errand. Over Thanksgiving, we were given the job of taking one of the family’s violins to the repair shop.
While we were there, we couldn’t help but try out a few instruments. My husband grew up playing violin but gave it up in middle school to learn banjo and guitar. But he can still pick up a fiddle and play beautifully. (Somehow that just isn’t fair.)
We came across a beautiful violin from the 1700s, and I videoed Mr. Handsome playing “Amazing Grace” (video below).
