piano recital

"My name is Kate and I will be playing 'Big Black Cat' and 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat'"

Kate had her first piano recital.  She was excited and brave.  She stood with confidence and introduced herself and the music pieces she would play!  We were really proud of her hard work and willingness to share what she is learning!  Yay Kate!

p.s.  How great is the yellow grand piano at the recital hall!?

Ellie turned 8 years old in March.  It was a special month.  She chose to be baptized...which I think as parents, has been one of our favorite experiences.  It was wonderful.  Unfortunately, in computer crashed.  I had backed up most things...but her baptism pictures were one of the files I lost.  I had made a book of them...but I wanted to have the pictures.  I begged is a better word...Ellie if we could do it again.  My friend Shauna let us re-shoot them in a special spot in her yard.  It reminds me of a beautiful grove~

Thank you Ellie and Shauna!!
