Lenny’s mom loved going to the beach, and it only took them fifteen minutes to walk to the beach from their house. Whenever his mom went to the beach, Lenny brought his violin. It was his favorite spot away from school. The park was also one of his trusted spots. Lenny and his new violin had become inseparable.
Miguel evolved into Lenny’s unofficial coach. All Miguel had to do was give a thumbs up or thumbs down and leave drawings in Lenny’s case.
Three months after Uncle Tim’s last visit, Lenny received a letter in the mail from Uncle Tim. He opened the envelope and to his surprise pulled out a handwritten invitation.
You are invited to be my special guest performer at your school’s Spring Concert on Thursday, Keep practicing!
See you soon, Uncle Tim

I will be sharing a page or two a day. Follow along, and if you like my story, please tag your friends or share a link of this post. Thanks for your support.
