The girls started piano lessons this fall. It has been such a fun experience for them and VERY convenient for me since their teacher comes to our house! YAY MOM!! While we do have a piano, it sits at my parents house and instead we have chosen to use a keyboard that we keep in our school room and incorporate at part of our daily school routine. This has worked really well for us and been super easy to just go right from "reading, writing and arithmetic" to piano. The girls both picked up on it really quickly but Anna seems to be the one who actually enjoys it. Serene did practice VERY hard and did great at her recital. She was the youngest at the recital and probably the least scared and shy of anyone there. She was the first one on stage and just bee-bopped her little self right up there and played and then smiled away at the crown awaiting her applause! Anna on the other hand had a flawless performance but was a wee bit shy and reserved. Both enjoyed the reception afterwards the most though with Christmas desserts and punch! =) We are proud of them both and they are both looking forward to spring recital already!
