recital number three

I had my third recital last night. So. Much. Fun. Well, most of it was. We got there early to set up and move the piano (thanks, boys!). About 15 minutes before it was supposed to start, Leah didn't smell very fresh, so Ryan went to change her. Only in my rush to get everything ready, I neglected to get another diaper in my bag. Plenty of wipes, though. :) He drove all the way home, got a diaper, drove back and made it about 10 minutes into the recital. Too late. Leah freshness had spread to her tights, darling skirt, and onesie. The only thing it didn't touch was her jacket...so she wore her jacket and a diaper for the rest of the night. So much for trying to dress her all cute! Ironically, there were extra diapers in the bathroom at the church. Oops!

My students sometimes give me gifts at Christmas...but they're mostly for Leah. One student gave her the cutest scratch and sniff book. I showed her how to do it and she was immediately a pro...she toted that book around al night. 
All in all, a success! All the students did great...and all songs were recognizable this time!

Good job, Maren! And I love the scratch and sniff. :)

Piano recitals are fun...especially when you don't have to play. Actually, I think I was pressured into playing at my students' recitals, so I guess they weren't that fun. But I did like getting the presents, too!

Glad it was a success! But Leah! What a mess. Jacket alone. That's great. I'm afraid I always have at least one extra outfit for each child in the car for just such an occasion. I can't tell you how many times we've been stranded with a partially naked child.
