Could I Have a Clone, Please?

Thursday night will be a big night at our house.

#1 is singing at a big school event.  Other than church activities, I don't know if she's ever sung in public.  She has a very nice voice, but she's always been in band and sports--never choir.  She had to try out for this, and from what I understand, she's singing with three other girls.  #1 was simply accompanying these same girls in another number they were doing, but when a fourth girl dropped out in the acapella number, she jumped in.  She has a short solo at the end of the song.  She is SO EXCITED.  I am too.

#3 is participating in the district track meet for middle schoolers Thursday.  We figured, at one point in the season, had she been competing with the high schoolers, she would have ranked 10th in the district for long jump.  She's in 7th grade.  Can't wait to see what the future holds for her.  She has come home with ribbons from each event she's competed in.  I think, at this point, she has eight blue ribbons and two white.  Yay for those long legs she inherited from her dad!

I share this, not to be braggy, but so that you can understand why I want to be there on Thursday night too.  How can I possibly be in two places at once?  Ugh!  Regardless, wherever I am, I will be one happy momma.  Looking forward to watching my girls shine.

That's fantastic! I love it when kids stretch out into unknown territories and find a new love, a new talent. Congrats to both of your daughters. They sound talented!
