Just a few picture off my phone this month. Leah is taking a photography class and loving it. She has different things she is assigned to get in a photo. She used the guitar for her lines photo. It turned out really cool. (I will have some of her pictures up later after she edits and stuff)
I love the instruction from father to daughter in this one.
And the excitement of getting a picture she liked.
Leah has had many opportunities to sing this month. First she was asked to sing O Canada for the skating festival. She really enjoyed that and hopes to be asked for many more national anthems. She was asked for the Irish Concert, but the MC forgot and skipped over O Canada and went right into the program. She sang with her YW for sacrament meeting and also with a group of youth at a fireside that night. The fireside was with Wayne Burton. He also asked her to sing a solo of a song he had written at the fireside. They only had one practice and she did a great job.
2A Boys Basketball Provincials was held near by and we took in 2 of the 3 day tournament. Blake was not to sure he wanted to go back for the final game and after was so glad he had. It was a very intense, exciting game. Our team won in the end. It was such a great game.
Blake got to perform with the school band at the Irish Concert. He is doing awesome and really enjoys the trumpet. He has started bringing it home more to practice. It is nice to hear him play.
Dave plays the guitar at home for us, but does not like to play in public. He said he gets so nervous, that his fingers feel like bricks. Leah and Blake really wanted him to do it and Dave said he would do it for his kids, and did an awesome job. They all did. They sang Country Roads.
We have got Blake signed up for soccer, which he will start soon. He has been wearing the night braces on his feet regularly, even tho he hates them, and is started to feel some improvement. Hopefully is will continue and he will be ready to run around with out pain by the time the season starts.
