Spring...piano recital and time for picnics.
On Saturday evening, April 17th, at 7:00, Reuben, Elizabeth and Matthew had a piano recital. I think they were a little nervous...but they still did well. Reuben played "I am Resolved" and "Calypso Carnival". We have seen so much improvement over this year!
Elizabeth played "God Leads Us Along" and
"Minuet in G". She is also preparing to play one hymn with the congregation at our upcoming Share Night.
"For the Beauty of the Earth" and "The Lonesome Pine" are the songs that Matthew played. They all did a little practicing ahead of time on the piano at the church, as it is a little different than the one they normally practice on.
Friday, April 16th, we had our first picnic! The weather has been unusually warm this spring...completely opposite of last year. Our tulips are 6" high, daylilies are coming up, the lilacs buds are quickly growing, and the rhubarb is making me think of Jean's rhubarb cake. On Friday, I also experienced something else...soft grass, prickly pine needles, soft warm garden dirt, smooth hard driveway surface and the rubber of someones running shoes on top of my feet. Are you wondering how this came about?? With my favorite summer shoes, of course. : ) (which are bare feet...can you guess who is writing today??)
Easter Sunday mommy was home with three little girls...we made Resurrection Buns.
"I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth...O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."
