Sadie has been taking fiddle lessons since October. We are very fortunate that her teacher comes to Happy each week for lessons. The Middleton kids and our preacher also take fiddle and guitar lessons. This morning they provided the special music for the offertory at church.

Sydni played "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." Sadie, Tom and Sam all played the fiddles and Cy and Robby accompanied them with guitar for "What a Friend We Have in Jesus."

I didn't get a picture of the whole group playing during church, they were too spread out. Tom was busy greeting everyone after church, so he's not in the group picture.

Marker Rockets

T.S. came up with his own rocket launcher on Saturday. He stretched a rubber band across the over-truned rocking chair and started shooting markers across the living room. He was quite pleased with his "invention."

Track Meet

Today we ran the individual events at the elementary track meet. Our team, Bow's Blasters, started the day with stretching.
The other pictures are of Sadie and T.S. at the starting line for the 50yd dash. Both of the kids ran really hard today and we were super proud of them. If you had to go to school on a Saturday, a half day of track was definitely the way to go.

Dance Recital

Sadie had her spring dance recital tonight. She did an outstanding job. The first pictures are from dress rehearsal--no flash photography during the recital. Her group did a pom dance to "Work This Out," a dance to "Fame," and a chant. The whole recital was incredible. We are really fortunate that Brooke and Robin are so willing to teach classes at the community center.

Robby picked up flowers for Sadie and T.S. presented them to her after the recital.

Tomorrow we have another busy day--the rest of the track meet (nothing like making up a snow day on a Saturday) and then Sadie has a fiddle jam session. I'll try to remember by camera. I forgot it this morning, so no pictures of the team events today.
