Easter Sunday

It's been a great day! I didn't realize Amber and Clayton's outfits would even halfway match. I had bought Clayton's shirt and tie at Christmas time. Amber bought her skirt a few weeks ago when she was down in IN visiting her good friend, Amber Petty. Anyhow, it worked out well.

Tonight, Amber and Jennifer brought an evening of sacred music to us. They had practiced hours upon hours for this. They provided piano duets, piano/organ duets, vocal duets, etc. They also had a really BIG surprise!! Apparently Jennifer's aunt, Linda Walker, had shared an invitation with their former piano teacher. As the service was about to start, in walked Mrs. Sue Schlabach, whom Jennifer and Amber love and respect alot! Mrs. Schlabach taught Jennifer for about 9 yrs. and Amber for approximately 7 yrs. So she has had a big part in their musical interests and abilities. She's a fabulous teacher and a wonderful Christian lady. She is the organist for the Detroit First Church of the Nazarene. We miss her and it was great to see her again!

How fun! I don't suppose you have any video clips? I would love to see some. So did the former teacher's presence make them nervous?

OH!! If only I had known they were doing this on Sunday night. That would have been awesome to come up and hear them play together. I love hearing both of them play and when they play together it is awesome!! They have such talent. And the picture of the kids! Great picture! Their outfits were so cute together. I'm anxious to see you guys again.

Sara,
I wish we did have footage of it, but we don't. Yes, their former teacher's presence did make them very nervous, but they covered it up very well.
