Pride

So, today was the 30th anniversary of Mt. St. Helens blowing her top. I could write about my memories of that day, but really, the more interesting things happen right around me. Both Kira and Necia had their choir concerts tonight, and they just amaze me both on individual and within-the-choir levels. I took video, so this photo is from John’s phone camera–the best of a not-great bunch. Kira is in the middle of the girls, in purple, as they performed a fantastically-done medley from Phantom of the Opera (Kira had a solo, as well). What I did not know until she was acknowledged after the performance, was that Kira had choreographed the whole thing! I was so impressed! Other highlights: Necia and Josh sang a duet adaptation of Les Miserables ‘ “I Dreamed a Dream”, and their high school Varsity Choir performed a fabulous medley of pieces from Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou? They did a powerful, beautiful job!

    Thanks, Kasey! We still miss you at the ward and at book club. Do you think you will ever ever ever come back, even if just to visit?
