I didn’t mean to be absent from the blog for so long, but it’s been a busy week and a half around here!
Last Thursday and Friday, my daughters went to a state fine arts competition with their school. It was fun and exhausting all at the same time, but I’m happy to report that their school did very well! In fact, my 10th grader will be going to the national competition in a couple of weeks as part of the handbell choir and a ladies’ vocal ensemble, and both girls will be participating in the band competition.
Thought I’d share a couple of videos from the competition with you! Here’s my 16-year-old competing in the “sacred piano duet” category. (She’s the one on the far side of the piano.) They got second place.
Obviously, neither of my daughters are in this men’s group, but it was a favorite performance for all of us. Seven of the guys are in my daughter’s sophomore class.
This past week was our spring break. We were with my family in Virginia for part of the week, and had a wonderful visit! We always feel spoiled and so loved when we’re there. It’s a blessing to be able to catch up with my parents, brothers, sister, in-laws, nephews, nieces, and the church family there.
All that to say that I haven’t been on the internet much lately, so I only have a few links to share today.
Sarah lists 7 Things We Get When We Rely on God’s Strength.
I’m going to have to make these Shortcut Cherry Pie Bars soon!
My mom took us to The Egg and I Restaurant on Wednesday. If I had one of these near me, I think I’d be in there at least once a week. I got the Strawberry Banana Waffle, and it was so light and delicious! There’s like ten other things on the menu I’d like to try. (Thanks to my brother for finding this place first!)
And my laugh for the week…
Hope you have a great weekend!
