Piano and Violin Recital/Federation
This year Ella and Michelle both did Piano Federation for the first time. It went okay but not as well as either of them had hoped. Michelle got stuck...forgot for a minute what came next. But after a brief pause, she continued on. Ella played with confidence and poise. Her timing wasn't perfect on one of her songs, but I was really proud of her. Both girls got "Excellent" ratings. They were disappointed, but I am proud of their hard work. (And if I'm being totally honest...I felt a bit discouraged...not by them...so proud of them...but I often wonder if I'm doing enough as a mom to help them and support them. Maybe if I knew more about music, and I was home more... then maybe they'd be even better at music.) Anyway, after the federation, we went out to cheer up/celebrate! We headed to Leatherby's for ice cream!
