Each year the kids participate in a violin concert for St. Nicholaus. They donate a used toy to charity, then preform for a large audience, and are asked to watch attentively when they are not on stage. In the end they are rewarded for their grand efforts with a goodie bag filled with a big speculous cookie, chocolates, and little candies. Our kids seem to preform willingly for such a reward. I'll upload some video of their current musical talents, ( surely you're salivating in anticipation?) but in the meantime, here are some shots from the seats in the peanut gallery. I'm convinced that if I spoke better french we'd get better seats; one incentive to staying in french class. In the meantime, we'll just continue to watch from the cheap seats.
C'est la vie!
