Tonight was Tim's piano recital, and it was wonderful. The teacher is a sweetheart, and the kids were cute--their hard work is paying off.
Tim practices on an old Baldwin organ/electronic piano here. It's a fancy item a friend left here a long time ago. If she or her kids ever want it, of course they can have it back, but here it still is over 20 years later.
We also have a keyboard my parents gave us up at the lake.
Anyway, the electronic pianos have a volume on them, so Tim practices quietly, usually while I'm working in the evening, so I hear very little piano practice music, and what I do here is muffled and soft.
In two years, he has learned to play the piano quite well. I had no idea how good at it he's become.
Sunday we drove up to Jay's parents and enjoyed my mother in law's cooking, card games all afternoon, a long walk between the rain, so low-key and lovely.
She was as good as an eight month old puppy can be, no trouble at all--lots of sniffing to do.
Tonight was Academic Awards. Our girl, Lydia, aka Kari received an award in English, which is good since she has straight As in French. We speak English in the home--she's proficient in this language, insults and all. Maybe specifically in insults.
