It's always a proud moment for me when Drey is willing (and able) to get up in front of hundreds of people and play piano in a recital. Maybe because the memory of the stark terror I felt when I had to perform in piano recitals is still pretty vivid. My hatred of "the recital" is the reason I quit taking lessons when I was a youngster. I wish I could have kept taking lessons and not had to perform but I guess that kind of defeats the purpose of learning...which would be to play for people! Anyways, tonight was Drey's piano recital where he performed Minuet in G by Bach. He did awesome, like he always does. It makes the whole year of harping on him to practice and driving him to lessons at 7AM on Thursday mornings before school and paying $50 a month all worth it. This one night every year is what motivates me to continue doing it for ANOTHER year.
Drey has the perfect piano teacher. And I'm not just saying that because she's my friend. She knows just how to handle Drey..and motivate him. We were lucky that she was willing to take Drey into her very busy piano lesson schedule. I'm one proud mama tonight....

Here's a big shout out to our new great friends, Spencer and Melinda. Thanks for having us over to your lovely home and feeding us yummy fondue and other delicious goodies. Thank you Spencer for sharing your "Mormon Wine" (also known as Jugo do Uva).
Things did get a little wild and crazy after the Mormon wine got passed around. I'm just sayin....
It was delightful to hang out and eat and laugh and play games. Thanks to the Lindahls for hosting and for being extremely kind and not kicking us out when midnight rolled around and we were all still in their home. I do believe a good time was had by all...... in spite of the double dipping incident.
