So after many months of practicing, frustration, some tears and then more practice, practice, practice, Claire had her first Orchestra Recital(?) last evening and everything went smoothly. Mind you, there were a lot of kids on stage and whether she hit the right notes or not, she did it and we couldn't be more proud. Seriously, my heart was bursting with pride.
Now she'll spend the Summer in her private classes so that she can return even better than before. She really does have a great teacher who is so patient and loving. I'm happy that we found her.
Claire and Olivia. Aren't they super cute!
I was going to write about something else today but our Friend, neighbor and Olivia's Mom, MaryBeth, emailed these photos to me this morning so I am able to write about this. Yes, can you believe that I forgot my camera.
One funny thing before I sign out. Both girls, reminded us, several times and several days before the performance that "it's customary to present flowers after a recital". MaryBeth and I got the biggest kick out of this.
