Our budding quartet

Last night we went to the University City Summer Concert Band concert. It's a little later than we would usually keep the kids out, but they all took naps in the afternoon since we had already planned on going.

They did a really great job! They were quiet (mostly) during the music and they all clapped after every piece. Dima and Zhenya got up and "helped" conduct for the last piece (a U City Summer Band tradition). Emily conducted (from my lap) throughout almost the entire concert, and she can actually hold a beat pretty well.

Of course we didn't take the camera...but we're planning to go again next week. If you're in the area come out and hang out with us; if not, you'll have to wait for the pictures! :)

I also met a mom this morning who lives at the end of our block. She has three kids...and her oldest has speech apraxia! We exchanged names and phone numbers and are going to try to get together for some playdates this summer.
