Hallie and Bailee had their music recital and guess what Mrs. Larson chose for them to play as a duet? If you guessed "Ode to Joy" you are correct! I just smiled and said that is one of our family favorites.
Hallie also played "Fur Elise" by Bach. Mrs. Larson thought she was ready for "Moonlight Sonata" however, Hallie's ability was bigger than her fingers. Her fingers aren't long enough to reach the necessary keys. Maybe next year?
Bailee's solo was "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," she did great! I was so proud of her practicing and playing "Ode to Joy" with Hallie. She didn't think she would be able to do it but she surprised herself and Mrs. Larson!! I loved it!! To God be the Glory!!
I also must thank God for helping me through another year of raising these precious gifts. Most days I know I am running on pure Holy Spirit Power. Usually, it was Tuesdays and Thursdays now that it is over I want to write down what my Tuesday/Thursday pick-up routine was just for grins and giggles...
