Last month the boys took part in their music school’s piano recital for the year. This year was extra special as it was the first time that Doggie boy is taking part in the recital. In previous years only Monkey boy got to perform.
Doggie boy getting ready to perform
Doggie boy and his teacher performed the song “Hot Cross”. I didn’t manage to record the whole song but here is a snippet which I managed to capture.
Doggie boy is very reserved by nature so he doesn’t really like performing to an audience. However we are trying to make him open up more and enjoy performing as he would need to hone this skills for show and tell and oral in school.It was a good experience for him and I’m sure in time to come he will be more open to performing.
Monkey boy waiting for his turn to perform
Monkey boy played the song “The Swan” by Saint-Saens. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to record this whole song too as the camera auto cut off the video I was taking a few times. Not so sure what that happened but I guess DSLR cameras are not really cut out for taking video.
He is a pro when it comes to performing as he knows the motions which he has to go through. It was great to see him performing so confidently.
Here is the song ” The Swan”. Listening to this song brings back a lot of memories for me as I performed this song on the violin during my teenage years as part of the school’s String Ensemble
Having elder brothers to play with can certainly be a lot of fun. There is always someone around willing to spend time with and be silly at the same time. Tiger girl is blessed to have two elder brothers who don’t mind spending time with her despite the rather large age gap of 4 and 6 years.
Doggie boy and Tiger girl
Tiger girl relates better to Monkey boy then Doggie boy as he is more patient with her. He gives in to her more as Doggie boy is still at the stage of vying with her for the things which they both desire. I guess their competitive character makes it harder for them to come to a compromise which is favourable for both parties. I do know that all of them look out for each other and love one another.
The kids having fun
Even though the house can get really noisy and messy with them chasing after each other and bickering with one another it only makes the place more lively. It is great to know that the trio will have each other to rely on when we are no longer around to guide them.
My brothers and me
Tiger girl is really blessed to have two brothers to look out for her. To hold her hand and guide her through life. They too are fortunate to have a little sister who dotes and adores them. I sure they are enjoying every moment of their childhood.
How is it for your kids?
