Days at the lake

Even with all the fun things that we had planned for the summer, the number one thing my kiddos kept asking was, "when are we going to go to the reservoir?"  For the past few summers our Wednesday activity is to go to Union Reservoir.  We pack a lunch and spend the day swimming, building in the sand, playing at the park, and soaking up the sun.  The kids stay happy and I love being able to read or visit with friends as I watch the kids play.  It has become our family summer tradition and we all look forward to Wednesdays.

Come join us next summer.

May Recital(s)

As a music teacher, I love when my students get to show off what they have learned and worked on throughout the year.  This May we hosted two different recitals; one for my group class and a combined recital with my voice students and Ken's piano students.

It is fantastic to hear and see the progress that these students had.  And as a mom, I was especially proud of watching my kiddos.  Trevor and Peyton sang with their class and each had the opportunity for a solo.  They sounded great!  Even though Trevor will tell you he hates to sing, that boy sings ALL THE TIME!  Peyton loves to perform and was really excited to have an audience.  Morgan and Trevor both performed on the piano at the combined recital.  (Sadly, I did not get a video of Trevor's song.) They did a great job.
