Back in the winter Amelie-girl decided to take up violin! She was very excited about it and had been asking for one for months and months before she finally started lessons. However, it didn't take long to realize that she wasn't particularly motivated to practice and in her own words, "Mama, I want to play piano because then I can sit down when I play because standing up to play violin is too hard."
So, she finished out the school year on violin and this week started working on her beginner piano book with my husband--and WHAT a difference! 
She has been diligently practicing and really really loves it! (must be genetic with the super-pianist father and the mediocre-pianist mother! =). 
Mr. Wonderful and her played their first duet today-
-Jolly Old St. Nicholas.
And seriously? Seeing my baby at the piano with my precious husband = SOB.
Happy sob though--like life is coming around full circle and there is too much joy to take in. =)

so cute! Somehow I don't remember you being only a "mediocre-pianist". :-)
