The Piano Recital

WHEW! This weekend was a busy one -- whatever happened to the day of rest. Saturday was spent practicing piano and shopping. Sunday was a lineup of church, bridal shower and piano recital. A little full for my taste, but all in all a fun weekend.

The piano recital was really great. It was Ricky's first time; he just started taking lessons a couple of months ago. He loves it so much he can hardly wait to go. You never have to ask him to practice he is always in there.

Their piano teacher is a wonderful, older German lady. She still has a hint of an accent and the kids say she will talk on the phone in German. All the kids love her so much. Usually a first recital is a little duet with the teacher, however, since Riane is advanced she played the duet with Ricky:

Braydon is doing great. At home he seems neither excited or frustrated. He just does it everyday. It is on his list and he checks it off. He likes his teacher and he seems to like playing -- just not much emotion. When it came his turn at the recital, he got pretty nervous. A few baubles while he was playing, but he did a good job.

Riane is really getting used to playing in front of people. She is part of the praise band at church now. So she had her nerves in check.

After recital the nerves were gone and the three were cutting it up a bit:
