Ethan and our cousin, Matthew, take piano lessons together and have so much fun doing it! They both played beautifully at their final recital of the year. Ethan played a duet with Miss Viss and Hurry Scurry on his own. Matthew played one jazzy song and also a song he had made up on his own. Very impressive!!
After their recital, the guys played for fun together:
That weekend my Auntie hosted a Pentecost party. For those not familiar, Pentecost is when we, as believers, celebrate when the Holy Spirit was first given to the disciples of Jesus after He returned to heaven. The Holy Spirit was described as coming like tongues of fire on the disciples’ heads, so it only made sense to have lots of red, orange, and yellow foods and decorations. Mostly, we were just having fun with the theme and thanking the Lord for the encouragement and direction the Holy Spirit provides in our lives on a regular basis. =)
And right before my parents headed back home, we stopped by their house to meet their new puppy: Bailey! She’s absolutely darling.
We sure love having family in town nearby! And we absolutely loved having my parents in town for a visit! Thanks for spending time with us again!
