The Piano Player


 The internet went down again, and I didn't have time or bandwidth to post about the rest of our week.  Sunday, Christopher had a Spring Piano Recital.  He got up there, and was looking so handsome, I was so proud.  He's worked so very hard.  In less than a year of piano lessons, he's already beginning to play with both hands!  He's very good.  

He had practiced both his pieces, "Jesus Loves the Little Children" and "Long, Long Ago" while singing, but when it came right down to it, he got up there and didn't sing.  I think he's learned a lesson, whether to sing or not sing, that's not the point, but to perform it just as he's practiced.  

Still, he was quite the dreamboat, and he played well, and I think I'm most proud that even with a few hiccups in his performance, he didn't freak out, or anything, he just kept right on playing, correcting the problems and moving on.  I can't say he would've done so well even 6 months ago with that.  But he's learning, he's growing, maturing, and he did a Wonderful job.  I am so very Proud of him!
