Piano. Outside.

There is a really nice piano right in the middle of the park in Kanata! So while we waited for Gabe's chemistry co-op to be over on Monday afternoon, Essy and Cole did some outdoor recital practice.  I am amazed how tuneful the piano sounds given it's in the weather all summer and there are little guys with sandy hands playing (smashing) on it.  Pianos aren't so delicate and all that.  They are made to be played, I suppose.  Even outside...

I was the parent helper in Essy group, so most of the pictures are from the 7/8 year old girls age group, but I did get a few of the boys.   Essy kind of kicked butt.  She had a chest full of red ribbons by the end of the day.  These are Jason's genes in action.

End of Year Band Concert 2018

Thank you, as always, to Mrs. Shew, bandmaster extraordinaire, for her tireless and joyful teaching.  They have improved so much over the 3 years we've watched this group grow and mature.

Easy was a pretty awesome opener, too.
