Hey, all - Happy Cinco de Mayo!

As usual, things have been crazy and time has been flying at the coop.

We had our studio recital yesterday, and I am so proud of all my students and their performances!  I know I've said it before, but I am continually thankful for the kind, funny, talented kiddos/students I get to spend time with on a weekly basis and their supportive, thoughtful families.  I am also so very thankful for my coworkers/friends and the opportunities we have to encourage and support each other.

Fun fact: two of my boy students were in casts as of a couple weeks ago, so we got to play impromptu duets on the recital - I played the part for whichever hand was out of commission.

The mom of one of my little girl students made this wreath, and they gave it to me after the recital:
Soooo thoughtful!
After reminding him of his Saturday recital time during his last lesson before the recital, one of my students said, "I feel sorry for the people who play on the Sunday recital."  "Why is that?" said I.  "Because they don't get to see you!"  I explained to him, "Well, there actually isn't a Sunday recital."  Relieved, he replied, "Oh good - then everyone gets to see you!"

The same little guy brought me these "fresh from the garden" before his recital:

The 5-year-old I nanny for asked me last week, "Do you have a boyfriend?"  After I responded, "No," he said, "You should get one."  I asked him where I should get one, and he suggested, "At a wedding...or at church...or a restaurant...or just somewhere - I don't care.  Just find one."  I told him I would see what I could do...though I've tried most of those options, already.

I hope this finds you well and enjoying the unpredictable weather!  Praise the Lord for some moisture...hopefully, we'll get some sunshine to go with it in the near future...

Thanks for reading,
