It is gray and snowy here today. And I am soooooo tired! I've been getting up at 5:45 to take Lucy to seminary and it is wearing on me. And even if I am tired all day, I am rarely tired at night. My hormones are all out of whack! So I can't go to sleep very early and the cycle starts again the next day.
Yesterday the girls had their piano recital and Matthew joined Lucy for a duet! It was really fun and was the last piece of the recital. It was a hit! And Lucy played a lovely Debussy piece right before that and did really well. If she just put her mind to it, she could be really really good! But she keeps talking about quitting piano lessons. I know that she doesn't necessarily want to become a concert pianist, but she could at least study it in college and teach piano to other people. How nice would it be to have a natural talent like that? Ibby did really well, too, but she gets so nervous! She just hates recitals so much! I could see the dread on her face the entire time! Poor Ibby. The boys were really good, but towards the end, Archie was whispering loudly about how long it was taking and when I said there were only two more people, Phin practically shouted, Yay! And then promptly assured me that it was his crocodile saying yay, not him. Andrea Ringer came because she is the YW pres. and super nice. And Rachelle Simpson came because she is thinking of having her girls take lessons from Pam. She is also the Primary Pres. Matthew told them that if he hadn't been at the ward council meeting he might suspect that our family was some sort of project, haha! It looked that way for sure.
There really isn't much going on here. Lucy has had some friends over to watch movies a couple of times. I guess rearranging the basement really made a difference! So that is fun to have fun and laughter going on. I've been drawing and crocheting. I'm almost done with Phin's blanket. It is funny how they're turning out to be all different sizes. Ella's and Ibby's are more lap blankets, but Phin's and Charles' are humongous!!! I just finished the 108th square for Phin's and need to start binding them together today.
