Then on Sunday morning, we split Masses (due to Joseph being out of sorts), so I got to take only Margaret with me. It was delightful to hear her four-year-old chatter without her being interrupted or correct incessantly by bigger siblings.
On Saturday evening, John and Mary performed in a recital. Their teachers like them to perform every couple of months to learn about the art of performing and also to have incentive to bring their pieces up to the standard of being performance-ready. Unfortunately, we had only four days' notice for this recital (when we realized we were booked all the way through the next two months, so we'd better get on the recital calendar ASAP), so their songs weren't as polished as they might have been.
Nonetheless, they enjoyed their time, especially at the reception afterwards!
Mary performed three variations of Suzuki's "Twinkle" (one not recorded) and "Go Tell Aunt Rhody."
John performed "Indian Dance," "Pyramid Power," and "Softly Whisper."
