guitars and a band

Five months ago, Sadie decided to take guitar lessons.  Last weekend she had her first recital. Gregg was on the road, so I videoed it for him (and missed it with tech problems).  Luckily, our good friend Andrew had his camera rolling (thanks Andrew!).  I send the video to Gregg.  He watches it and texts me back something so sweet about Sadie.  I get this text the next day when I'm standing in the checkout line at Fry's. And then, waterworks as I realize that, although Gregg won't admit it, he is also feeling the reality of how short our time is with Sadie  before she leaves for college.  The video explains.....

You leave home, you move on, and you do the best you can....
My "seasoned" friends say the anticipation of your kids leaving home is worse than when they actually leave.  I hope that's true, because the anticipation is kinda brutal.  

 Enough with the sad. Garin and Lisa's daughter McKenna also performed.  Sadie and the boys did the "band" thing for her. McKenna is only 14. Watch for her on Idol in about two years.  Amazing.  


Here's a little pic of the band.

Rock on.
