Claire's Violin Recital

Today was Claire's first violin recital. She began taking lessons in September and we absolutely LOVE her teacher. She is wonderful. Claire is only taking 15 minute lessons this year because she is only 5 (will be 6 next month) and we wanted to see if she would like it.

The recital was scheduled for last Saturday but 6 out of the 7 of us had the stomach bug. Yes, it was a mess, literally. Jack was the only one spared. Miss Chi (Claire's teacher) arranged for her to play in another recital today.

Below are some pictures and a short video. And by the way, isn't she adorable!! :)

About to go in...super nervous
Trying to get a picture of the boys...
Claire and Miss Chi


  1. How adorable! She is just a doll in her smocked dress and cowgirl boots. Hate that you all had to fight the stomach bug!

  2. That is so precious! She did so good! I can't wait to show this to Annie.
    PS. Can you believe our girls are going to be 6?

  3. That is so awesome! She can really play well- Marky took for one year and his "donkey calling hehaw" song at his recital was scary- not nearly as pretty! great job!
