K's Choir Concert and Awards

 Also on Tuesday, K had her choir concert / choir awards.  Tuesdays, as you know, are already crazy...but this one didn't turn out too bad.  C's baseball practice was canceled due to the severe storms earlier in the day.  J is done with football, so no practice for him.  K had her concert, so obviously could not go to YW.  It ended up being just scouts and choir concert.  Not too bad, although they were at the same time.  Thank goodness for two drivers.

K, J, and I headed to the choir concert since K had to be there early.  CK took V with him to drop off C at the church.  CK and V got there just after it started.  After the first song, however, there was a technical difficulty with the music CD and that lasted about 15 minutes.  CK and I started to worry that he would not get to see K sing at all.  He did.  He had to leave before the awards to pick up C, though.  This time he took J and I kept V.  It worked well.

So, here is K before leaving for the concert.  Isn't she sooooooooooooo gorgeous?  Look at those perfect features!  Look at her beautiful hair, eyes, cheeks, lips!  She is so pretty!

 Since their concert was 50's and 60's, they were supposed to wear something from the era.  I made her this poodle skirt.  It was cute.  After getting there, I think I left it a little long.  -sigh-  Oh well!

 Singing away!  They sounded great!
 K got three different awards.  First, she got citizenship for her great citizenship both in choir and in all her classes.  Then, she got 3-year choir award.  This was special since she really has worked so hard the last three years at choir.  It was kind of cool because Mr. Q was her 6th grade teacher at her first middle school.  He now also works at her current school so he was helping hand out awards.  She got to have both her 6th grade, as well as her 1/2 7th and all of 8th grade choir teachers there.  Cool.

Finally, she was also nominated for outstanding 8th grader...voice, citizenship, leadership, and attitude.  Her teacher nominated a few from each grade and then the students chose the winner.  She actually had seen the list of winners earlier so she wasn't shocked that the award went to another girl.  It was just such an honor to be nominated!!!  She even got a certificate for that.  :)

She did so well.  I am so proud of her. Her voice has gone from being mediocre in 5th grade to AMAZING in 8th grade.  I love to hear her sing.  It is beautiful.  I am so glad that she is my daughter.  I am so humbled  by her talents and all that she teaches me.  I am blessed.  So very blessed.
