On Saturday, Annika had her second violin recital. She could hardly wait for it because this was the first time she would perform using her bow instead of plucking the notes on the strings. Her chosen piece was "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and she did a great job!! On top of that she, once again, volunteered to be the first performer. She's one brave little soul!
To make things even more exciting, Eric's parents came down from Whidbey so they could go to the recital, too. I don't think the day could have gotten much better for Annika than that!
Oh wait ... there were cookies and lemonade after the performances were all done. NOW life is perfect! :)
