Connor and Kenzie started back with their chorale practices today. They are members of the Chesapeake Youth Chorale. If you happen to look at the link, Connor is in the front row on the right hand side. He's the one that's out of line. :) This was taken during the concert with The Soldiers' Chorus of the U. S. Army Field Band and was Connor's very first concert after joining and he'd only been a member a month or so as he joined in the middle of their year. It's hard to believe that he's starting his 4th year with the chorale. It's amazing how much he's grown and matured during his time with them. He's gone from a shy child who doesn't like to have attention focused on him to one that can get up in front of the other choristers and lead them in a song. Kenzie is starting her 2nd year and you know this chorale means alot to her when she ranks it higher than ballet class. I love the Youth Chorale Festival that is done every year. Unfortunately I missed the one they did earlier this year due to morning sickness. 4 choirs from around the state get together and practice for a day and then in the evening they put on a concert as their own individual choirs and then as one big choir. It's really something to hear all those young voices singing together. What a presence they have.
I hear that we will be getting some roosters tomorrow. They'll be breaking in our new chicken coop for us. Of course, I've heard that for the last two days so I'll believe it when I see it. And I'm not quite sure how it's working that we are having roosters hanging out with us when I recall saying no roosters were allowed. DH claims that since they aren't crowing yet that it will be just the same as having hens. Hmmm...not sure I buy that one. LOL
Nothing much else happening today. Had some idiot of a guy try to hit me when I dropped the kids off for their soccer game. Nothing like zipping down a parking lot when people are trying to park their cars and kids are trying to get to the fields. And to make it worse, the guy gave me a look like I was the idiot when he zipped past me. Some people!
Did some stitching tonight on Mother's Bliss. Trying to finish up all the dark green before I move on to the next project. Hopefully I'll get it done in the next day or two so I'll be ready to work on the mini rr over the weekend.
