Enough about me – we’ve had some other awards around this house lately. Sarah had her highland dance medal tests last week and earned a “Highly Commended” in both the pre-bronze and bronze categories; the highest level awarded. All four children came home with medals or trophies at the curling banquet; we were especially proud when Evan won a main award for participation, co-operations and sportsmanship. Last month, Sarah, Alex & Olivia had successful performances in the Truro Music Festival, participating in piano, voice & trumpet categories, earning a number of red and blue ribbons. Alex was asked to sing his folk song, “The Nova Scotian Diet” in the final concert and after his performance presented his music teacher, Chella Henderson, with flowers as she was acknowledged for her many years of teaching in the Truro area. (She was my music teacher growing up too!)
Enjoy the performance, videotaped by Sarah.
