Our daughter was the school winner for the Healthy Soils are Full of Life Art contest sponsored by the Northern Panhandle Conservation District on May 5, 2017. She received a cash award sent as check in the mail. We were not able to go to the awarding ceremony due to schedule conflict with her sports but it was really a good opportunity where her art talent shined.

Our trip to Moundsville became an artsy kind of day for the kids, thanks to the kind lady who offered to let the kids use their art room while the parents are dismantling the playset outside. It was so nice of her to let us in the school building and let the kids used the art supplies.
This is what he made for his Dad.
This goofball lady can be very creative most of the times especially when she is bored. Over the course of summer break she have painted like a dozen of different paintings. I will have to share it here soon. I don't mind buying her materials because she can really put them to use. My plan is to remodel our basement and use halp part of it for their art works.
To the lady at St. Francis Xavier Parish, thank you very much for making my children's stay in Moundsville an awesome one. You didn't have to do that but you did so I appreciated it so much!

This year's music recital was done a little earlier. In the previous years, Torrance Music always hold in June but due to graduation and other events of the older kids, they decided to do it in April. I like it in June because it isn't cold anymore but April I guess is okay. It was raining though on that day so that was a downside.
The event was held at Memorial Baptist Church on Sunday, April the 15th.
Glad to have a family like the Howells, they never missed to attend my kids special event, we appreciate it very much.
I offered to make my daughter's hair but she did not want me to do anything with itm, she said it looks fine the way it is. Makes me a bit sad that my daughter does not want my help anymore. She's almost 13 and so far, she hasn't show any interest in makeup or any other cosmetic stuff. I think she will grow up just like her Mom lol.
This is Ms. Fedoush, her piano teacher. She is a wonderful teacher to my daughter. She is very patient and kind which we love very much. She's the reason why my daughter plays very well in piano. Due to school events and the scheduling of her piano lessons, my daughter asked if she can take a break with piano for a while. I hope she would still consider going back to taking piano lessons again, I would miss it if she stop playing because she is good at it.
This is Ms. Tipton, she's our daughter's violin teacher. This is her first year teaching and also my daughter's first year of taking violin lessons. She wasn't gonna play during the recital but because Ms. Tipton is leaving, she wanted her students to showcase what they have learned from her. She is graduating from her teaching degree from Franciscan University and she has a job offer in Ohio so she is leaving the area. Fortunately, she have recommended another violin teacher who will assume her position which is nice.
Rylie made some thank you cards for both of her teachers.
Our little girls is definitely growing. In my eyes, she is still my little girl even though she act and feel like she is 20 already lol. I miss the times when I can do her hair and those things that we did when she was little. As she grows, she changes.

St. Joseph School's music choir had their Christmas pageant this year at St. Joseph Church last November the 30th. Both of the kids are part of it. Our son sung at the choir and our daughter was one of the narrators, she also sung at the choir after the play.
I wasn't able to watch the play because I was assigned to help two other Moms in assisting the children with their costumes and ensuring the peace and quiet at the back of the church while the play is going on. My husband came home early that day so he could watch as well. I gave him the task of taking pictures. He managed to record a couple of short videos of the play.
The same choir also performed at the Serra Manor to share some cheers for the holiday to the senior people living at that assisted living place. They went there during the school day so we weren't able to go but I am sure it gave the old people some exciting moment listening to them sing. Kudos to Mrs. Bernardi, their music teacher, for organizing this and for patiently teaching and working with the kids.
Torrance Music had a Christmas carol at the Geriatric Center here in Weirton. This is the place where old and sick people are being taken care of. It was a really nice event to be able to spread cheer to these old folks who most often don't have anybody or don't have any family anymore.Serra Manor, the adjacent building where senior assisted living was. That was a really nice one as well.
Our daughter played a classic song. We arrived there early so she got to practice her piece before everybody arrived.
Below is the video of the last part of the performances. My daughter performed last and she was disappointed she messed it up. When she practiced, she was flawless. I think it's the nerves.
I hope that they would continue doing this because it really makes a big impact to those people who needs a little cheer during this time of the year. Some of the old people were singing to what the kids are playing so it was really nice.

Torrence Music finally hired a violin teacher, it's the moment our daughter have been waiting for. We got her a violin last Christmas but we couldn't find a teacher near our area. During the recital, the owner of Torrence Music talked to us and said that they have a violin teacher. My daughter's piano teacher mentioned to her that we have been looking for a violin teacher that could teach our daughter.

Last night was her second lesson and she said she love it. Before her class, we went to Center for Arts and Music in Wintersville and bought her some supply like shoulder rest and humidifier. The teacher seem to like Rylie because she already knows how to read notes and stuff so it is easier for her to explain stuff to our daughter. She also gave us a list of some to her things to get. I am glad she is into music.
I wish I would have had the resources to learn music instrument when I was younger but I am happy that we could provide the privilege to our daughter to enjoy her music interests.
