As many of you know, Luke has been looking forward to February 6th for quite some time. He loves music, and he is very talented musically, so the District Solo & Ensemble competition is important to him. Today Luke played "The Magic Flute" on his flute in front of a judge, accompanied by a piano, and then he played "Für Elise" as a solo on his piano in front of a different judge. He was nervous and excited, and he performed very well. He received the highest rating possible of "1" for both of his performances. As a result, Luke will have the opportunity to participate in the State competition on March 19th in Chelsea.
Today is Laura's birthday, and our family was able to enjoy dinner, cake, gifts and a movie all together. Overall, a pretty good day. We will (hopefully!) all be able to attend church together tomorrow. We are so thankful.
Can't stop, WON'T stop praying for God to heal our boy. (James 5:14-16)
