'Twas the spring choral concert at the high school last night, so Ai's last. It was long and, unfortunately, too much that was uninspired, but those kids know how to redeem themselves with a big finish! First, they sang "America The Beautiful" and "The Awakening," both of which were performed at a choral festival last fall -- lovely! The spring concert is always a tough one for the director, but it's hard for the kids (seniors), too, and there were tears with the presentation of flowers and the scrapbook they made to hold her collection of senior photos from the last 10 years! But then they rolled out a chair for her and sang her a song: "Thank You For The Music." It was upbeat and sung from the heart -- that was an inspired song! They had only practiced a few times -- whenever they had a particular substitute teacher -- oh, and there were more tears! Forget-me-not...
I spent a little time on the phone with the Geek Squad before the concert. Um, feeling the love not-so-much with last night's geek. There has been improvement, but performance is not quite acceptable yet (and I am not expecting miracles nor, I guess, am I to expect perfection). I'm inclined to take a computer break tonight and take it up tomorrow -- my day off, but also Kt's moving-home day!
I flew home and snapped some garden pics -- I've been enjoying Chelsea's pics (the pansies are to die for) and links. Compare the photo at left with this one (slightly narrower view) from two weeks ago. That bleeding heart almost reaches my shoulders, and all the itty-bitty heart blossoms... Wow!
