Musical Debut for Anna

Tonight we had our ward classical recital. I sang "Ma Rendi Pur Contento" - I feel like it's pretty polished now. My accompanist did a fantastic job, as usual. I had the thought that perhaps Anna was ready to sing at this recital (we have one a year), but I wasn't sure if she would go through with it or not, especially if she had time to think and worry about it. So I didn't mention the idea of it to her until this afternoon. She said, "You mean, sing like the grown-ups? (pause) YES! I want to do it!!!" So Tyler & I had a backup plan, just in case she didn't go through with it - Tyler was conducting the meeting, so since Anna was the first performance (I scheduled the program in order of age), Tyler just stayed on the stand to see how it all went. I was the accompanist for Anna and she sang "I am a child of God" from the primary songbook. I wish that we could have video recorded it - she did SO well! I am so proud of my little girl! *sniff sniff* :o)

Things are crazy busy right now - it seems that we don't have enough time to do everything that we want to do. (I guess that's how it is all the time) Tonight was the recital, tomorrow morning Tyler is leaving for Hawaii for one week (that is one ROUGH work trip, let me tell you...) and I'm doing a garage sale at a friend's house. All. by. myself. Yeah. So, we'll see how that goes. We have to move everything from the last garage sale (done at Shannon's house) to Angela's house and we have to do it in the morning BEFORE 8am (because it has been raining all day long) and that means we have to be up around 5am to get it all moved and situated. So, we'll see how it goes...

A budding performer! Yeah Anna!

Good luck with the garage sale. And good luck being husbandless this week!

Anna did great; she was so brave! The whole program was wonderful. I thought you put my piece last because of the sweet spiritual nature of it. Now I know you put the program in order of the artist' age. *sigh*. Next time arrange it in the order of maturity; then I can be first! LOL
