Poor thing!

So, we had an interesting outing tonight...
To a gigantic Assembly of God church--warehouse sized (won't even begin to imagine the things that might go on in that worship service--nope)
It was a pretty, and nice/warm church, though...
Oh, we had to drive a good 45 minutes to get there...
to go to a...
Violin {concert}.
Well, you have to try everything {once} right?
Here is how it all went down...
We arrived at the church with me having to pee like crazy...
I got out of the car--with Victor in the backseat SLEEPING.
I drug him out of the car....threw his coat on him, and proceeded to run into the church..
My exact words, "I WILL leave you in this parking lot if you start all that crying mess!"
Then I just ran.
We entered this fine est. with Victor trailing behind me wailing as only a three year old {boy} can.
On to the actual rehearsal, in which Victor decided that standing in front of the church with oh, 60 other kids, and his violin was not his cup of tea, today....soo....
You guessed it!! He {cried}, and he did not stand up there.
On the other side of childhood....and personality...there stood Elena...
I took Victor out, and she just stood there...
The whole time.
We watched her..proud.
When all was said and done--she was trembling uncontrollably..scared/nervous to DEATH!
So, to summarize.
We are not a violin concert performing family.
Ya esta!

We did try just b/c we love our Violin teacher so dearly.  She is such a breath of fresh air...in a small town.
She is fun.  She was glad to see us there.  She was playing with the orchestra.
If we go tomorrow night we will go as a family, eat sushi first and then go to the concert --to {listen}.
I do not thing I will ever forget Elena's little sweet self trembling, at the end of that!

Three yr old boys - you either want to squeeze 'em or shake 'em! :) Oh... Elena... that was so brave. Good for you for trying it {once} -
