Children, Cellos and Cowboys

Another much anticipated weekend has come and gone! Here's Saturday's run down:
8:45 am - 11:30 am
Primary program practice - I was in charge of the program this year - a first for me. The practice was stressful but successful!

11:50 am - 2:30 pm

Cello recital - Isaac's very first one. He was so focused that he forgot to give me the nod to start the intro on the piano and started playing without me. Not wanting to interrupt his performance I let him continue to the end. And, as we had practiced so many times before the recital - he stood up, took a bow and sheepishly pointed at me with his bow to acknowledge the accompanist. Except I hadn't played a note. Everyone had a good laugh and thought it was cute. I don't think he was quite as amused but he got over it pretty quick. What a kid - there is just something deep within that won't let him break the rules!

4:30 pm - past my bedtime

The 15th annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Heber City - My parents have been attending this for years - and I was thrilled to finally get the chance to go. We went with some friends and had the chuckwagon dinner and saw the Bar J Wranglers. It was great, good old American fun. Good laughs and great music - and I don't even like country music that much! The Bar J Wranglers are a favorite at the festival for sure. They are very impressive! This festival goes on for one week every November. There are many performers, shops, dancing and food. It's quite the event! It's over this year but round up some cowboy boots and put this on your list for next year!

I am happy to report that the Primary program went great! No big mishaps - the kids rose to the occasion just like everyone promised me they would!

Congratulations all around. Those primary programs are a big deal! And, what a great story about the recital. That will be a fun memory to look back on. I'm sure he still did great.

I didn't know you were in primary now. I'm in charge of ours which is on the 22nd. I feel so badly because Rob and I have been/are traveling every weekend. They are going to fire me!
Sounds like another great weekend. I-man=amazing kid.

That part about Isaac made my day. First to see him playing and second, to see that he is still that sweet boy that just takes life happily. It made me think of him when he was small and we used to watch him.

Joy! Family life at it's finest. I forgot all about the Cowboy Poetry thing. And we were going to go.

Sweet I. I had no idea that he was a cello player.
