Normally the kids have their piano recital at USFs school of music. They sit on stage and play on a beautiful grande piano. This year we did zoom recitals. Amanda, their piano teacher came by a few days early to give Natalie her 5 year award. It was a sad moment when Kobe ran out of the house to greet her and then screeched to a halt when he remembered he could not give hugs. On a positive we were crazy proud of both of the kids dedication this year. The last few years had been difficult for Kobe. Getting him to practice was like pulling teeth and every week he wanted to quit. He finally seems to be over the hump and having a good time on the keys again. I think playing percussion in band this year has helped. Here is to more years of music and mayhem.
