Auntie Em played Goltermann's Concerto No. 5 in D minor for the Timpanogos High School Concerto Night last night. She did really well and looked so pretty up on the stage! Rachel kept singing along while Emily and the other soloists did their best to sing and play over her noise.
I was impressed with Emily--she forgot where she was during the song but just kept playing, improvising her solo a little bit until she realized where they were and then she dove right back in full swing. She didn't even stick out her tongue or anything. She was completely composed.
She got three bouquets of roses! It was like Valentine's Day all over again!
After her concert we all headed over to Andrew's parents' house for cookies and ice cream. Rachel surprised us by being social. She was passed off from one of Emily's friends to the next and she didn't cry one bit (well, maybe a little bit...). She didn't really smile at any of them, but she didn't scream at any of them, either. Perhaps she liked that they all had sparkly jewelry on.
