Merry Christmas from Pickle

I had the hardest time figuring out how to upload this video of pickle doing his two pieces from his Christmas Concert.  So I decided to try posting it on you tube and see how that goes.  (I will be posting one from each of the kids doing something soon) 
Pickle is playing "Hunter's Chorus" first and "Joy to the World."  This was a fun recital given at a rest home. I was asked to accompany all the violin students.  There was one piece that I worked really hard on to get just right.  We had a little Christmas Miracle because the student and I stayed together.  The piece was called Elegy by Lamar Barrus.  It is a viola solo that is just beautiful. Pickle has enjoyed playing in the orchestra at school this year.  His teacher lets him go during school to participate with the 7th and 8th grade orchestra which he thinks is really cool.  His brother told me one day that Pickle is the most popular kid in school because everyone knows him and thinks he is really cool.  I thought that was pretty funny.  Pickle is loving to read.  He has read all the Magic Tree house books and many Junie B Jones series.  Now he is liking the Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  He is excelling at school and works hard to get 100% on each weeks spelling test and has all semester so far.  We sure love him and think is so much fun!

Way to go Conrad!!! That is awesome. He is such a cute little boy. Way to go Mom too :) I always have a hard time uploading videos lately. I guess I'll have to try You Tube next time. Hope you have a great Christmas!
