My kids are awesome.
Claire played the oboe for the school district solo festival last weekend. She was playing a level V piece of music (out of VI). It was the first movement of Hanel's Sonata No. 1. She played beautifully and gracefully listened to the excellent constructive criticism by the adjudicator. She got an "excellent" rating. That's just one level below "superior." Yeah, Claire!
Benjamin drew this awesome doodle as part of the spelling assignment to illustrate his spelling words.
