For your listening pleasure and mine...
I just couldn't help myself. Monk and Twinkle Toes' piano instructor emailed me some recent studio recordings of their playing. Since I'm always holding a baby and/or toddler during recitals I usually manage to mess up the video taping, like by forgetting the camera. Anway, I was thrilled to get a few of their pieces in mp3 format so I uploaded them to my playlist for our listening pleasure.
Twinkle Toes (10) has been playing for 3 years and Monk (12) for 2 years. The first and third songs are performed by Monk and the middle song was written and performed by Twinkle Toes, our little budding composer. A big thank you to my parents for paying for their lessons, and to my mom for taking them to their lessons and practicing with them every week. What a blessing it is to live in a house full of music!
I hope to add more of their songs to my playlist as they're made available to me.
- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
