Competition!!!


Every year our homeschool choir and band go to a fine arts competition. It's so much fun!
The day started off by dragging myself out of bed at 5:00 am. Ugh....
We were on the road by 7:00, but it was still pitch black outside! We got to see the sun rise. It was gorgeous!

 The ride was kinda long, but the closer we got the more excited we became!

Me and my bestie Makenzie! Sorry for the blurry photo, LOL!
My brother's Elementary Choir (They placed 1st and best of show!)
                                                       This is my choir. We placed 1st!
                                             This is our girl's ensemble. We also placed 1st!
                                                     This is my violin solo. I placed 1st!!
From 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., we ran around listening to people perform, and doing our songs. Finally, when every category was done, everyone met in the auditorium for the evening service. The winner of the preaching category had a 10 minute message that was very good. After that, they started announcing the awards and have the best of show people perform in front of everyone. There was one Jr. High boy who was elected best of show who played the piano. Even though this boy got 2nd place, he was chosen to do best of show because of his great determination and amazing talent to play the piece so well. This boy was blind. He played Clair de lune beautifully without the use of his eyes. It was simply amazing. And when he was done, the audience exploded with cheers and clapping and gave him a standing ovation.

The day turned out wonderful, and our choir and band had our best year yet!
On the way back, I TRIED to catch some city night pictures. Failure...
Don't ask me what this last picture is... I have no idea! But doesn't it look kinda..... cool?
Later,

Ohmygoodness! I LOVED your violin solo. It was so pretty, and I know how hard it is to shift up and down from third position to first, and so on. But you did REALLY good!

In Christ,
Grace

Haha, thanks Grace Elizabeth!! That was very nice of you to say that. Yes, it can get hard to shift sometimes, can't it?! I had to do a little 2nd position in the song too. Thanks so much, Grace Elizabeth!!!!!
