    Karin,
    Sending good thoughts your way; for you, Ida, Gustav and the whole family. What kind of music is Gustav studying? I hope Chicago will be a wonderful experience for you both.

    Thank you, Lisa, Marianne and Pattye!

    The 45 weeks of music school is focused on rythmical music, a lot of it with creating your own music. It is in the tradition of the Danish 'folk high school'. Gustav has been taking piano lessons since he was 9 and it has mainly been classic music but he has added some electric guitar in the past couple of years and has been in the band for the staged shows at the school the past 3 years.

    The schools break a little differently here so he is graduating from 12th grade now (Gymnasium), which is a year earlier than High School would be. Next step here is University for a bachelor or more, no College. Gustav's most likely choice of education is software development.

    I've been kindly pushing him to take a year off, go off and learn about himself as next time could be once he hits the job market. Growing up with Ida has not been easy, though he has made it look easy, and I want him to leave home, if just for a year, and be a silly teenager for a bit instead of only a responsible teenager.

    How interesting, Karin! Gustav has grown up so much since we first met; Ida also! Music expression can be so important; my Grandson (turning 19 today) is studying percussion at University, does marching band performance, competition and teaches also. Both Gustav and Ida are so fortuate to have such a wise Mom as you guiding them to adulthood.
