Solo and ensemble night-Musical Theater

Julia before the program
Julia singing last night, she is a soprano, and her chosen song was from
Jesus Christ Superstar "I Don't Know How To Love Him".


Our attempt at getting a family picture taken last night. LOL, Amanda was crying, Meghan would not look at the camera, neither would Kara, and well, I am not loving the picture of me, but then, I never like pictures of me, so...Julia and Tom look really good though. Anyone else feel 25 and look older too? That's where I am right now. :o)
All of our older children are into music, Fred plays the Viola, and played in Tucson Junior Strings, Terry was in marching band and played Coronet and Trumpet, he also sings and plays the guitar. Eric played cello and viola, but he is more into sports; swimming and triathlons now. Brian played so many instruments in marching band, I can't remember all of them (sorry Brian); but I know he played the Tuba and saxophone for a while. He was also in theater in school and now acts in plays all over town, both dramatic and musical theater. Julia plays the violin, was in Tucson Junior Strings, and is now in chorus and musical theater.

Meghan adores romantic comedies, her favorites right now are 13 Going on 30 and the Princess Diaries series.

Kara and Amanda do not have favorites yet, but Amanda tried her best to sing with the kids last night, we are teaching her the meaning of Shhhhhh. Kara loved the performance too, and clapped enthusiastically. Amanda is learning to applaud too. Meghan sat in her chair and sulked because daddy and mommy were holding her new sisters and not her. Ah well, we are all adjusting to our new life, Amanda has not even been home 3 months yet. She is a trooper though, she did get overwhelmed last night after the hour and 1/2 show.
There were two girls with Down syndrome in the show, one sang well, the other was so pretty, but shy and did not sing loud enough for us to ehar her.

Kris,
I wish I could have heard Julia sing. I bet it was just beautiful. Your older kids are all so talented in the arts and music. I am so glad you got to take all of the girls to the musical last night.The family picture looks great it shows how much fun you were having.
Thanks for sharing.
