Owen's favorite activity these days is playing the piano. He started piano lessons with the new school year. It was very exciting for all of us to find a teacher willing to give lessons to a 4 year old. While we've definitely noticed that he's been spending more time at the piano since the lessons began, it's clear that he's not particularly interested in practicing the lessons that his teacher has in mind. However, he's very interested in teaching himself to play his favorite songs. In the video below, he is working on the theme song from Wallace and Gromit. (Note that Owen has never seen anyone play it, neither of us knows how to play it, we don't have sheet music for it, and he can't read music anyway. He's working it out entirely by ear.)
