My 4th and 5th grade Advanced Choir performed on Thursday night and Friday afternoon and did a wonderful job! They started a new tradition last year of signing the board after a performance, sometimes leaving little notes for me. How could I be upset to find such heartfelt messages from my dedicated choir? My heart swells with pride (despite the spelling errors!) as I recall their commitment and musical growth. When I’m under a great deal of stress, sometimes I wonder why I put so much time and effort into extra activities, but it’s moments like this that remind me.
