A violin Recital

Last night we went to Macie's first violin recital. She was a bundle of nerves waiting for the performance. When the violinists came in (4th grade violins) I was so proud of her. She was all smiles and very happy to be there. She is playing the same violin that I played when I was a girl oh so many years ago. They played 3 tunes and then we listened to the 5th and 6th grade bands. If you want to still play the violin in 5th and 6th grade you can. Macie showed some interest last night in sticking with the violin next year. Thomas of course is coming unglued with excitement about playing the violin next year. Grandma and Pa joined us for the recital and they were very impressed with our little violinist.
Today is my Dad's (Pa) birthday and the gang called him this morning to wish him a Happy Birthday. We will celebrate here at the Hay House on Sat. with dinner.

This is the age Haley was when we moved from Rocklin! It was half-way through her 4th grade year and I remember that band concert!
How fun for Macie and I hope she sticks with it!
Haley is now in 7th grade and no longer plays violin, but does play the flute in band and of course, piano. She is one crazy piano player! :)
Do I have your e-mail? If you get it to me (my e-mail link is on my blog) I can e-mail you our Christmas letter and photo! I was cheap-o this year and didn't mail them, so get me your e-mail address!
Happy b-day to your dad!
