Just a little note

Good afternoon everyone,

I think I have just enough time to submit one more entry over at Ribbon Carousel Challenge where the theme was music this week. Once I got going, I just couldn't stop at one music-themed card - I guess now I have one on hand next time I need a thank you for our piano teacher!

There are now three of us playing - my two sons, Chester and Pickle Pants (has had about 6 lessons) and myself - our teacher and I have been joking about a "family rate." Our recital was on Saturday and went very well! Pickle Pants got a little nervous and had some trouble finding middle C - first recital, but I am one proud Mama! It is a big deal for Pickle Pants (who is six) to get up in front of that many people! Chester even played a duet (Dutch Dance) with his teacher and they sounded fantastic! We certainly do not have a grand piano - we play on an antique family heirloom that belonged to my Grandma & Grandpa but was rarely played - it is a beautiful piano and we are so happy to have it. My parents had it shipped clear across the province after my Grandma passed so that we could keep it in the family. It now sits proudly in our kitchen. This was the reason that we started taking piano lessons in the first place, and I'm so glad for it! If my boys continue playing (and I hope they do!), I would love to hear them play on a piano like this someday!

Best run and get dinner going - tonight we are attending the recital of Danderella's daughter who lives up the street - her girls and my boys have been friends since they were born and are really more like close cousins. They are always there to support one another for things like this and I love that!

Cheers to an evening of beautiful music!
