Spring Music Concert

Hello there, we're finishing up our concert tour for the school spring concerts.  Jonathon's concert was last night.  In addition to the singing, his class did a song with all different types of drums.  They had to dance/play at the same time...pretty amazing!
 The concert was for a portion of third graders and fourth graders.  An extra treat that my adorable niece, Olivia, had her class performing on the same night.  There were four different performances to accomodate all of the classes.  I imagine our music teacher will sleep well this weekend...very thankful for all the hard work she puts into the concerts!  And...look how beautiful Olivia is! (no bias here :)!)
 Jonathon took us all to his classroom to meet his teacher. Showing off Nana and Mr. Hank to his teacher.  Look at Marcel's eyes..think he is up to something?!
 Not the best shot of Jonathon/Marcel, but I had to capture Jonathon's skinny legs...he is so skinny and I love these "skinny jean" corduroys on him...a little too short, but he looks so handsome!
 Two handsome brothers...Ryan and Collin stayed home...sometimes two is easier than four when in a crowded school concert!
After the concert, we went to the cafeteria for the art show.  I love Jonathon's turtle...and the peace signs on the turtle shell.
I decided to make a card inpsired by his painting.  I loved the bright colors and the peaces signs...see how I used his artwork for the inspiration for the card?  And how fun that the colors were the same as the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge.  Hope you like this fun, cheery card!

  2. Lynn, I think you should have Jonathon create a blog so we can all be inspired! LOVE the peace sign you created with the twine! He must be so PROUD of your card and that you chose his turtle with peace signs to model it after!
