"I'm a Soprano!"

As I walked into the kitchen earlier this morning, I found Sam, Jayme, and Caleb diligently doing their school. And as I neared Caleb, I found he was just itching to tell me something.

"Taylor," he began, "I'm a soprano!"

Well, this was breaking news! For about a year, Caleb has insisted he was a bass. He would go for the dive during our concerts, and try to sing a bass harmony whenever we sing together at home. He has often asked Ben to hit a low note to prove he can hit it too. He'd play a low note on piano, let out a growling noise, and then joyfully exclaim that he "could hit a C"! In fact, if you remember from the "I'm Feeling Fine" video with Legacy Five, he gave bass singer Glenn Dustin a run for his money!

Since I had known he was a soprano for a number of years, I feigned surprise, curious to see what caused this change of mind. "So, what makes you say that?" I asked.

"Well, when I try to hit those bass notes, those were actually lead notes! The notes I thought were low were lead notes! I'm actually a soprano!" he exclaimed with the joy of discovery written all over his bright face.

Later, sounds of joyous, high-pitched singing were heard from the bathroom (FYI: all Garms family kids have debuted in the bathroom; the Garms Family singers have been singing for almost 25 years ago in this special "concert hall").

Joy in the Journey!

Taylor for the Garms

Catching up on old posts...

Technically, of course, he's a treble :)

Now, do you mean treble...or trouble?! :-D

(Sorry, couldn't resist!)
