Pianist in the house!

Josie has been taking piano lessons for a couple of months. Billy takes her each week as he has been doing guitar at the same time. While the lessons aren’t in the same room, they have enjoyed bonding time on the car rides. It’s something special just the two of them get to do together.

Each week the piano teacher asks Josie if she wants to perform at the winter recital. Each week Josie says “no, maybe next year.” Until last week. That’s when she said she would do it. I think the teacher sold her on punch & cookies.

So today we went to our first recital. She rocked it! Josie was third. The first two only did one song, so it didn’t give us a lot of time to understand how these things work. That’s where Josie’s confidence comes in handy. She was calm & cool. I was nervous!

I love seeing the kids try new things.
Way to go Josie!

Oh and I bribed her to wear the shoes. Mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do.
