Isabel had her game face on for the Snownami volleyball tournament today.
It’s Angela’s birthday tomorrow, and Isabel worked all afternoon to make sure it’s a sweet 16.
Isabel’s piano Festival was on Saturday. Thankfully the stomping in the snow softened to gentle footprints and was awarded a “Superior” rating (top honors). It’s easily my favorite piano piece she’s done. Beautiful work Isabel!
A multitasking study involving a memory game and sending text messages earned Grace 1st place at the regional science fair, and a trip to the state science fair in Minneapolis. Fantastic work Grace!
Isabel’s been preparing for the MFMC festival which is next weekend. She’s to play a beautiful piece of music called “Footprints in the Snow” by Jennifer Linn. Problem is with just a week left to prepare, I’m now calling it “Stomping in the Snow” by Huffbreath Hissyfit. 😉
noticed a theme in the last couple posts… thought I’d complete the trio.
-18°F (-28°C) at the bus stop the other morning… cold it was.
Happy 13th Grace!
25°F today, a little windy, but for Angela, brutally cold.
Christmas at the Morey’s.
Finally, some winter weather.
This was the first concept. The scale of things didn’t work out the way I wanted and the dogs were a nightmare to get sitting by the fire.
I’ve got another idea in the works – fingers crossed.
The Christmas card remains a work in progress… While it may turn into a New Years card, I though I’d share one that didn’t make the cut.
Much to be thankful for today… Grandparents that drive half way across the state for Isabel’s piano recital. A piano teacher who takes great pride in her students, and a smart kid who makes learning piano look easy.
and great job Isabel ~ ribbon/certificate was for earning top honors on the Minnesota Music Teachers Assoc. piano exam.
Isabel passed her piano exam last weekend with “high distinction”, scoring 90/99. In addition to sight-reading and scales, she prepared three pieces to play, one of which was “The Prowling Pussy Cat”.
Great job Isabel!
