Last Friday after school Alyssa asked me if she could have some friends over.

First question was, “When?”

“Tomorrow?” she suggested.

“Are we talking overnight for just for a few hours?”

“Overnight,” she declared.

“How many? Because before you answer, I’m thinking two is ‘having friends over’ and three and more are a party.”

“Okay, two.”

“What will you guys do?”

“I want them to come over so we can sing acapella.”

Well…okay then.

She’s been mildly obsessed with the acapella group Pentatonix lately but I honestly never thought she’d want to invite friends over so they could sing together.

I love the idea, don’t get me wrong. I think it’s awesome that she and her friends are that much into music.

So when S and T showed up, S with her ukulele and T with her flute, I couldn’t have been happier.

They even let Olivia join their musical group. She found a drum set, a guitar and her recorder.

The four of them made beautiful music.

And I sat on my couch thinking about how lucky I am to have a teenager who would rather sing acapella with her friends and play her flute/ukulele/guitar than just about anything else.
