Last night, my heart soared as I watched our little girl sing her heart out at our school district’s honor music performance. It was a wonderful concert and I’m so glad she was able to be a part of it.
We had originally encouraged her to join the Honors Orchestra with her violin. Because so few kids actually play instruments, anyone that wanted to be a part of the honors group could. But our Little Mimi didn’t want to be in the Honors Orchestra. She wanted to be in the Honors Choir. The only problem was that the orchestra roster was formed two weeks before the auditions for choir. If she didn’t make it into the choir, she wouldn’t be able to participate at all.
Despite all of our concerns and advice, Mimi had no worries. She was determined to audition for one of our schools five Honors Choir positions. (Stubborn little thing never has listened to us!) Mimi confidently sang her audition. Of course, she got one of the coveted spots, just as she knew she would. We are very proud of our Little Diva.
Note: I was going to title this “Our Little Songbird” but someone insisted that I use the word “Diva” instead!
