Jane and Her Fall Concert


Jane had her (socially distanced) fall violin concert in the park.
She did a fabulous job! She's so adorable and graceful when she plays,
and I love watching her progress and develop this beautiful talent.
I could barely hold my phone steady as I filmed her playing
 because I was crying.  I couldn't help it.  
Even as I type this I have a huge lump in my throat remembering.
It was so beautiful and she practices so hard every day,
 and I so admire her dedication.
She played a solo piece called "Judas Maccabaeus" (Handel),
and a duet called "Ashokan Farewell" from the film "The Civil War"
with her intructor and our friend, Heather.
After the concert, Ollie drove the family
 (he needs driving hours to get his licence) 
to get seasonal shakes and ice cream (pumpkin!).
October in North Carolina has been amazing!!  
We've been loving the mild days and chilly nights,
and, the hot tub is OPEN!
