Talent Show with Special Visitor

Ohhhhh boy. I'm here. I haven't gone AWOL, so don't worry. I've just been busy (mostly the good kind of busy).

Last week the junior high had a talent show, and Tyce was in it! I admire anyone who can get up on stage in front on their peers and do their "thing," don't you? There were singers, dancers, and instrumentalists (and even two cute boys who did animal calls). Tyce's friend Spencer played a classical piece on the piano, and Azure played the guitar AND sang an adorable song I'd never heard before. Such talents at such a young age!

Tyce sang the Chris Brown song "With You" and he did great. I miss his high voice though . . . he had to sing this song an octave lower! I guess I'd assumed he'd be a tenor but it looks like he's shaping up to be a bass.

This is the only picture I took, because my camera doesn't fare well in low-light settings. He got his fedora back (after it being confiscated by a teacher) just in time for the performance.

My brother had a conference in town (where he delivered a mighty fine presentation) and he was able to make it to the talent show!

Since it was late-ish when we returned home the twins had a snack and were off to bed. Dave showed me the wonders of his new camera (Canon s90). It does well in low-light settings. I am officially jealous. It also takes really great up-close pictures, and the older kids had fun with that.

Great job on the talent show, Tyce! I love you, Dave! Thanks for visiting us!

Now that sounds like a great day! And yes it is so hard to get up in front of peers at that age, that is amazing he did that.

I'm so bummed that I missed Tyce's performance ... there was a stake RS mtg I couldn't miss - but my kids said he did a great job and was SO CUTE (no surprise there!) I saw him before the performance and I say, good thing he got his fedora back! It looked great on him!
