Band Concert

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Lauren’s band concert was tonight. It was amazing to hear how much better they sounded since the Christmas concert. They were good then, but tonight they really played so well together and sounded like a group that had been playing together for so much longer. Lauren saved me a seat in the front row right next to one of her friends, so I had an awesome view of the whole thing. Congratulations to Lauren and all of her band classmates who have really accomplished something special in this first year of playing.

Piano Recital

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

The girls had a piano recital today. They looked beautiful and they played beautifully. It was a little dark, so the pictures aren’t great, but you get the idea:

Volleyball Game

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Beth had a busy day today, because after her 5K she had a volleyball game. Her team won the first game with an ace that Beth served, so I guess she wasn’t too tired from the run! Anyway, she had fun playing the game.

Girls on the Run 5K

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

It rained just before the race this morning, so we were a little worried, but when it came time for Beth to run, the weather was perfect. And wow, she did great! Beth finished 5th out of 72 girls in her age range, missing the 4th place spot by 2 seconds. She also beat all but three boys in that age range. Not bad for a girl who just started running two months ago.
