Will is in the top row, fourth one in.
We got to see Will perform for the first time with his new choir. We loved the instrumental group and both choirs. Choice of music was delightful, and the kids did a bang-up job even on their "challenge" piece. I think it was a Haydn. This next one is from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Pie Jesu. I've loved hearing Will sing it around the house:
There were only two problems with the concert. One was Joss. He was a demon despite my having brought in a coloring book and crayon. Two was our camera. The wee video function is just not up to all of our performers!

Maddie's on the left, about four girls in.
We had a week of performances before the kids got out of school. First was Maddie's orchestra concert [though Maddie refers to it always as "dorkestra"]. They played a Jingle Bells and Carol of the Bells and a piece called Santa Goes To The Symphony with excerpts from Christmas carols and well known orchestral pieces.
Mercifully, Maddie came first on the program, because Joss made it through only two of her pieces before having to be carried out. We called it a night after her group was done. I'm so glad we got to see her! Her confidence and sight reading have improved a lot, and I love the fact that now she's practicing for a grade!

So celebrating 20 years of friendship, on the anniversary of my driving a Ryder truck full of documents from Santa Barbara and having a blowout on highway 101, Jen came up and got this SA-WANK suite at the Hotel Park City. It was heavenly. It was quiet. No one was demanding anything of us and nothing need cooking or cleaning or arranging. We spent a lot of time talking on the couches, in restaurants, hot tubs and the car.
