Recital Time

Last night was my spring recital. I had 13 students and we started the recital at 5:30 and it was done by 6:15. Everyone did so good!! They really had time to practice. I was supposed to have it May 19th, but no one was ready, so I postponed it. I am so glad I did.

I made quite a spread for the after recital treats. We had: Little Smokies, homemade salsa and chips, strawberries, grapes and fresh pineapple, cheese and crackers, homemade chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, egg salad and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and I made three different cookies: chocolate chip, rice krispy treats, and Oh Henry bars. For our drinks we had rootbeer floats. I was literally in the kitchen all day from 7-2:30 making and preparing things. Then Tanner and I went to the church and unloaded all the food and set up the chairs and cut the ice cream for rootbeer floats. When I was a newlywed, my parents ran a little league concession stand and every once in awhile, we would serve RB Floats. You get a rectangular container of ice cream and cut it down the middle and then cut it into sections and put them in the cups and put them in the freezer until you're ready to use them, so Tanner and I did that.

Everyone apprectiated the spread and I was so glad to have it over for another 6 months!! So the above videos are Tanner playing his first song: Tokyo Toccatina, Taz and Lawson Borla doing their duet of Chopsticks (which by the way sounded horrible Sunday when Lawson came over to practice, it was a miracle they pulled it off, but they were so cute!!), and Cynjyn playing her last piece, Love is Spoken Here.

Darn, I don't know how to get the sound on Dad's computer. I made the mistake of opening it in the office, so I won't be able to get it on my computer in the house! All of my volume buttons say they are on high so I don't know what to do. but I watched Tanner move all oveer the bench, so I know it was good! They can give me a private recital soon!
