First Violin Recital

In this season of rushing here and there, our whole family got to pause together when we attended our daughter’s first violin recital.

It was wonderful to watch her perform.  She also performed her recital piece at her 2nd grade talent show.

It’s been fun to watch her learn a new instrument.  She begged for months, and finally we relented.  She takes good care of her violin and seems to enjoy it.  I’ve learned it’s a difficult instrument to master as I’ve tried to help her with practices.  I hope she plays for many years; watching her makes me want to take lessons myself!

It makes me happy when my children work at things which are difficult for them.  I hope they’re learning that they can try new things, work hard, and become proficient.    Life is better when we know such things about ourselves.

I’m also grateful for her example to me.  I, too, need reminders that I can keep working at what’s hard for me, and eventually become better.

Way to go, Miss A!
Love, Mom

    that is awesome. if I could go back and pick an instrument to learn it would be the violin. I absolutely love it and was blessed to have a room mate who majored in violin performance for a year.

  • I didn’t know she was taking lessons, that is wonderful. She looks so pretty and grown up!
