The girls had their piano recital the Sunday before we left to fly out to California. I was proud of them. While they didn't perform flawlessly, they didn't let their mistakes rattle them and played their songs all the way through.
K often restarted phrases when she made a mistake but she still made it straight through her two numbers.
C was kind of funny. At home she pounds out her pieces loud and proud but with volume dynamics...at the recital she played very quietly but still maintained her dynamics.
The girls with Mary, their piano teacher. You couldn't find a more bubbly person or a less intimidating teacher but they still listen and strive to satisfy her.
Mary and her students. Several of the older boys were particularly good pianists. I hope the girls listened and were inspired. :)
We had a great time at Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon - I took lots of cool photos - that I hope to work on tonight. Yesterday, we arrived at Lake Tahoe. Now is time to relax and chill.
