Anniversary Celebration Final Element - Gift of Music

During our anniversary blessing, Mac and Ethan preformed a "gift of music," Pachelbel Cannon in D. They worked really hard on this piece, had many practices with Mac's violin teacher, and many rehearsals at home. At times it was difficult for Ethan to keep the same tempo mostly because his part was very repetitious, but Mac was a pro at getting them back on track. It was very important to us to include the boys in our anniversary blessing, and we were delighted that they willingly took time to learn and practice this piece together. It was beautiful even with it's little imperfections. As for their grandparents, the "gift of music" was definitely the highlight of the evening.

Thank you Kim for posting this, now we can always go back and relisten, yes it definitely was a proud moment for the grandparents and always will be! It wouldn't be complete without our two boys playing their special song for Mom and Dad and Grandma's and Grandpa's. We love you all!
