Studio Violin Recital #2 (M)

This is M’s second studio violin recital where she played alone with a piano. She was such a champ – not nervous at all. I am so proud of her. She loves playing and works very hard to practice with her dad. So happy this is working out!

Violin Recital (End of Year 1)

M had a great violin recital on Mother’s Day! It’s been amazing to see how far she’s come in the last eight months since she started playing on a cardboard box. She seems to really enjoy it and it’s a great bonding experience for her and R.

My dad snapped a few great photos of the gals playing violin. Ignore the fact that S’s is a Christmas Tree ornament.

Spring Break 2015: Jacksonville

We had a great trip to Florida for Spring Break. We met up with Papa John in Jacksonville, walked on the beach, went to a Blues festival, visited the zoo, had dinner with Cousin Amy (and got the good seat at Mellow Mushroom), didn’t sleep at all one night, hung out with cousins and their kids, aunts and an uncle and swam everyday. We even got to attend the birthday party of my college roommate’s oldest son! It was a great little getaway and we are thoroughly exhausted from it :)

Big Girl Bed

I felt ambitious this weekend while R was sick and I moved the toddler bed into S’s room and dismantled the crib. M also had a sleepover in S’s room for both weekend nights. It was an exciting weekend and the sleeping changes were pretty successful. Can’t believe we don’t have a crib at our house anymore – first time in 5 years.
