Upcoming events….

It is April 2nd. The beginning of a very busy month. Spring break has been wonderful! I’ve enjoyed a good amount of rest balanced with much busyness. My main accomplishment was working in the print shop, which I loved! I really miss working in there with the hum of the machines, the music to sing along with, and the books to pray over concerning who might read them in the future. 
Now that April is here I’m looking ahead to what comes next. First, school starts tomorrow. I have a LOT on my plate and will only be able to handle it with the Lord’s strength. My classes are: Intro to Sociology, English Comp.III, Music Theory III, Ear Training III, Choir, Small Vocal Ensemble, Piano lessons, and Voice lessons.  My little elephant eraser buddy in the picture is to remind me that the only way you can eat an elephant is one bite at a time.  The same with this quarter…one day at a time.

 Next up on the agenda is a Wilton Cake Decorating class!! I’ve been wanting to take this class ever since I started decorating cakes several years ago.  Being self-taught I have had to learn a lot of things the hard way and I’m sure there are many of the basics I still don’t know. I don’t have a lot of time to get into decorating at the moment because of school but I know that if I don’t take this class I might never do it. It’s such a good skill to have! I can’t wait to learn how to use all those tips I’ve had forever. 🙂  Plus it will be a fun time to spend with my mom as we do it together.

Lastly, on April 14 I have been asked to play at a concert in La Conner! It’s the Young Emerging Artist Concert. “La Conner Institute of Performing Arts is proud to showcase the talents of this year’s outstanding young artists from Skagit and surrounding counties.  This concert promotes interest in music by offering free admission to everyone under age 18.  Concert participants receive honorariums and certificates recognizing their achievements” A friend and I will be playing a duet and I will also be playing a solo. It’s going to be an interesting experience as it will be my first time actually “performing” so to speak other than recitals. But I think it will be fun and I’m looking forward to it!
Well, that’s April-to-come in a nutshell! We’ll see how this goes….
