Developing talents

The kids have had the special blessing of taking piano lessons at the local music school in Toila, Estonia. 
They have private lessons with wonderful teachers.  Although they have been taking lessons since they Fall of 2009, they have actually only had about 12 or 13 months of regular, steady lessons (due to summer break, holidays, sickness, etc).    What a joy it is to see my kids developing a talent that they can use to honor, glorify, and serve the Lord.  

Recently the kids had a recital (via Skype) for both sets of grandparents.  I thought I would share their accomplishments with you.  If you leave them an encouraging comment, I'll make sure they see it.  I know it would mean so much to them. 
(they were all nervous being video taped and having Skype on since they have never played for anyone except us and their teacher.........this is probably the reason they all look so serious)

  6. Keep it up kids! Sounds good! Maybe we can get grandpa and grandma to buy about 10 more pianos, so all the grandkids can practice at once! Wouldn't that be something?!! Especially if everyone was playing a different song:)
