Thankful Thursday

*I am thankful for our great school, sports, music and clubs. I am thankful for a daughter who works hard at her studies AND on extra-curricular activities, including chorus! She sang a soprano solo (Class B which is darn good for a 6th grader; usually not till 8th grade or underclassman do you see Class B)of "My Lord, What a Morning" and it was sweet. Ally has a very clear voice and never wavers out of tune. I am picky and notice that stuff. She was a little "airy" at the contest on Saturday, but it's just a matter of breath control (and NERVES)! I am so proud of her for singing a solo in front of a room full of other kids and parents...and the judge. She also sang soprano in a SSAA duet of "How Can I Keep From Singing", Class C with her friends Jacy, Brooke and Andraya. They sounded like one voice at the beginning and end of the song and--I know this sounds so biased--they were really good. Can't wait to hear more from them as they get older! (Perhaps a Barbershop Quartet like your Mom?) Thank you Grandma for coming to listen!

(By the way, 6th graders don't get a rating, only a "Critique Only". Kind of boring, but I guess it takes a little pressure off of the kids.)

*I am thankful for the ability to stay home and not venture out in this ice!

*I am thankful for a husband who plays games like "Apples and Oranges" with the kids on our snow/ice day. I am thankful for kids who are healthy, smart, and funny. !

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.--1 Thessalonians 5:18
