Ellie was darling at her first violin recital. She stood next to Alex and played with a flourish. We got to shake bells on two songs: Jingle Bells and Sleigh Ride. Lynnie and Spark-a-lie (her fish) even got in on the action.
I was mad at myself that I forgot my real camera, so the phone had to do. I was proud of Ellie for how well she concentrated and how well she played. She swayed to the music a lot, started doing a bow flourish at the end, and always had a fantastic bow.
