Friday's afternoon concert was indeed a treat. DD already had a piece memorized for the concert. However, her teacher would not let her make any changes that a person with a natural ear (later on a gift for writing) will tend to want to make. These Un Music teachers/professors let her do what she wanted to the piece and she did! The arrangement was beautiful. She did play it like a race horse and missed a note. I noticed it. That is something we will have to continue to work on. Faster is not always better.
Her is my tiny little thing in her 'camp attire' on a huge beautiful concert stage play a huge concert grand Steinway Piano.
Here she is with one of her fellow ensemble and one of her music teachers. This was the evening concert of ensembles. It was wonderful and such talent from so many young people!
Then we have BIRTHDAY!
Saturday a fun time with a small family cookout and presents. Since weight and calories is always an issue and we will be having plenty of treats on the actual birthday, I did not have cake or any type of dessert. Just fresh fruit and it was very good. No complaints from anyone! :-)
And of course, being in a family of photographers... no one is safe!

The next day we have her friend party.....
Western/horse theme (no, we don't have horses, but like all little girls, she keeps wishing...) And afternoon of friends ice skating and fun!
