Concert Week

This past week I have been exhausted every day.  I think having 2 concerts in one week took it’s toll on ME! The kids were fine of course.

Lolly did her best despite a little bout with strep days before the concert and a very challenging section of her piece.  Her face was priceless when she didn’t quite nail the tricky part on the first try. (Got it on the repeat! YES!)

Phoebe didn’t play a solo, but rocked her duet.  I finally saw some confidence return in her.  We have had a rough 6 months practicing the violin.  For the first time in almost 4 years of daily practicing the violin, I have had negative thoughts: What did we get ourselves into?  Thankfully I’ve learned that with every high in life there is a low, so I haven’t completely freaked out.  I’ve been taking music study one minute at a time.
