Three Brags

Ally has a beautiful soprano voice and sang a solo at the middle/high school Christmas concert a few weeks ago.  Being the teenager she is, she didn't tell me about the solo.  I had to hear about it from her choir teacher!
Another place where Ally excels is in band.  She has been first chair trumpet the past 2 years in her own band, and this year she was among the other 7th-8th grade students from our town who got to rehearse all day and perform with the conference honors band.  It was a great experience for her.  I played trumpet into college, and I can appreciate the practice she puts into it. 

Brag #2 - Our son was chosen, along with one girl, among his classmates to read their essays at DARE graduation on December 5.  Cy is a good writer (although he usually doesn't sit still long enough to write much), and he read with confidence and expression that night.  Plus the subject of his writing was important--I sure hope he keeps that pledge to stay out of alcohol and drugs!

Brag #3 for the day:  Shae qualified for the elementary (grade 1-4) spelling bee!  This is something that she had made a goal of hers, as last year she sat in the audience and watched her twin sister compete.  I was also proud of Paige for being happy for her sister.  (Paige was an alternate this year.)  Shae made it all the way to third place (going out on "mischief") and was so excited to receive a certificate and medal!
Way to go, kids! ;)

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.--Colossians 3:17
