Today was one of those fun ones as a parent. This afternoon I had the pleasure of attending 2 different recitals where I got to see my 3 youngest children perform. Fortunately they were both up at the college in buildings right next to each other.
First, we went to a recital put together by several local music teachers. There were kids that played guitar, violin, and piano. Jackson and Jebb got to perform a duet titled "Blue Bird." I thought it was GREAT! I love how Jackson kinda pauses in one spot so they will stay in sync. I have heard that number practiced about a zillion times this week, and I was so glad they were able to play it so well!
Next door, in the big concert hall, Elise had her end-of-year recital for dance. We had to leave the other recital a little early to make it, but we met up with the big boys (Gabe and Seth) and watched Elise dance. Elise has been doing a LOT of dance this whole year and although she has participated in a few competitions and a ballet performance, this was the real culminating even for all of her work. You aren't allowed to take pictures at the performance, so I am putting in these class pictures instead.
It was such a pleasure to see the kids doing things they enjoyed and doing a good job at it! :) What a great way to spend Sunday afternoon!
