Stomach Bug & Recitals



This week has had quite the pattern. Starting Sunday night it went stomach bug for Taylor, Monday night recital, Tuesday night stomach bug for Chris, Wednesday night recital and last night stomach bug Trevor. Being that there's no recital tonight I'm hopeful that will kill the pattern :)

Moving on, this past semester I've taught Taylor and my friend Stacey's two kids piano. It's been a lot of fun to see the kids love for music grow. We had a little recital at our house Weds. night and it went great. My dad got this video of Taylor:

I can't tell you how proud I was of her. She showed a lot of maturity in how she responded to not getting that note right. This is a real struggle for Taylor- she can do most things well and fairly quickly and she doesn't always have the best attitude when she messes up. But that night she persevered and although you couldn't see her face she smiled at me and just keep trying. I told her that I was more proud of her for trusting God in making a mistake then I would've been if she had played everything perfectly!

I was so touched by her playing. I am so proud! And her bow at the end was priceless...
