Prelude Strings Orchestra

In March Lily performed in the Omaha Area Youth Orchestra. This group of volunteer students was from all around the city and at many different levels of experience. They met on Saturdays for 8 weeks before their final performance.

I was so proud of Lily for showing an interest in this and even with only one year of learning the violin to her she was willing to put the work into being a part of it.

Piano Recital #2

On December 16th the big girls played their piano recital. This year was different for us as the recital was held at the Mormon Trail Center here in Omaha instead of at our church. I’ve been wanting to head down there for a couple years now to see the displays of Gingerbread they put out during their Gingerbread Festival.

I was sad to have to miss that and miss the girls’ performances this year. There was just too much scheduled at the same time, I was hosting a baby shower during. So while I had 4 babies Phil took 4 with him. Thankfully he was able to get some video snippets for me.

The Spelling Bee

December 10: Another new experience for our big girl. She made it into the school spelling bee which apparently all 5th graders were required to test for. Only 20 students were in the Bee however and Lily made it all the way to the the final 7. One of her best school friends went on to win and will go to the citywide spelling bee.

A Chorus Show

I’m so proud of our Lily. She has been involving herself in a lot of things that are completely new to her lately. Earlier this month she volunteered to go along with the chorus group she’s in from school to perform Christmas songs at an outdoor mall. Unfortunately some nasty weather was moving in at the same time so Scheel’s was kind enough to allow the kids to sing inside their store.
