I know I already posted today but holy cats! We are so excited!! We went to Roosevelt tonight to meet with Conductor Eric Dale Knapp about our trip to Austria. Ok, now I understand that in the big scheme of things... like Jesus dying on the cross, this isn't much. But let me tell you, it's a blessing, nonetheless.

I cannot believe that I will be watching my daughter perform in Austria at the 200 anniversary of the Hayden Festival, a world music festival! I'm absolutely so thankful that God can hear my heart and not depend on me for words.

Me being the dork I am, I took pictures of him speaking and one with him and Phyllis and one with her teacher, Maestro Knapp, and Phyllis. I don't care if I get dork mom of the year awards. I took pictures and my daughter was embarrassed, but she knows I love her and I'm SO proud of her!

So today... I'm a proud mom, a blessed mom, and thankful to Jesus for making this way for us!

Psalm 69:30 I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
An example of what she is going to be singing!!
