Day 476: Graduation!

That's right, Sweet P graduated tonight!

From Suzuki's Twinkle Variations.

Get EXCITED!!!!  (Only if you weren't already, that is).

So, I kind of explained it the other night, but the way this worked is thus:  It started with about 10 students playing some more challenging, advanced pieces and then the songs got progressively easier.  As the songs got easier, more students joined the group on stage depending on what level they play at.  Sweet P was kind of near the end, so the majority of the violinists were on stage by the time she went up.  It was really really neat to watch them all play together.

And we were so proud of our Sweet P!  It's hard to tell how many kids were up there.  I'm really bad at estimating, but I'm going to go with at least 75?  She's the super cute one in pink, about 4th or 5th from the left.

Anyway, this was a totally awesome Joyful Moment as a proud mama tonight.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that get progressively easier, and not the other way around!

Such a cute girl! She's getting so big.

The whole fels naptha thing was one of the reasons I haven't ventured out into making my own soap yet. There is one from Costco that they sell here that I really like. It's plant-based and unscented.

What a great idea for doing a recital. I really like it. And wish we'd been there with you to listen.

My joyful day ended with Family Home Evening - as we read and discussed E. L. Tom Perry's talk on the Sabbath Day and the Sacrament, we learned even more by sharing our thoughts.
