Tonight was the girl's Piano recital. Here's a pic of our two girls and the two oldest Jensen kids. They all have the same Paino teacher...because we can't do anything without the Jensens involved in some way. I took videos (of Riley and Mary Beth) so you can enjoy the show.
If you need help with stopping the music player at the bottom of the page - just scroll down to the music player and click on the large circle with two parallel lines (to pause).
Each girl played two songs. Mary Beth was first.
And here's her second piece.
Now Riley's first song.
And then her second.
Afterwards we all enjoy refreshments and snacks...chit chat in the Gatlin standard standoffish way and then leave. Cory and baby Lu had the night off and stayed with some friends on the circle. That's mainly becuase the previous two recitals were only seen by one parent. The other parent spent the evening roaming the school halls so as not to distract from the show with loud and unruly kid.
I was very proud of all the kids. They sounded great!

Now, at this point some might be inclined to call it a day, but noooooo, there is so much more in store for Freedom Circle's Memorial Day Bash.
But wait! That's not all. After the kids had their competition, it was time for some adult competition. A throw down to Build a Better Burger. Everyone was invited to submit a burger for a 'friendly' contest. I say 'friendly' because a few on this circle are pretty darn competitive (you know who you are!! :)). Indeed, it was friendly, and we all gorged on 10 different burgers (apparently there was division in one household on the best submission, they submitted two)

She also thinks she's too big (or maybe it's too cute) to get into trouble. At the slightest discipline she pours on the tears. Today on our way to lunch she kept squealing. When we finally made it clear to her that she was to stop, she began crying into her shoe.We've said it before, but it bears repeating, we are in trouble with this one.

The girls are always sad to say good-bye. I don't blame them--Sarah's a terrific girl.
