This afternoon Annie had her piano recital. She goes to Beach Music Studio where she takes piano and song.
I was wondering why she wanted to go dressed in one of her dress-like dressing gowns, but as her teacher explained at the start of the show, Annie was a “double-threat”.

Turns out she had arranged to do a song-and-dance routine with her music teacher, singing “Barbie Girl” with her.

Despite a few duff notes here and it was a good show, and it was interesting to see other students showing improvement over previous performances.

I walked the kids home and got them lunch at the local Licks restaurant while Erika went off for another trumpet performance downtown.
The kids started playing with the neighbours, and after a while Vanessa came in and asked me what the world-record was for hopscotch length. She and Devin from a couple of doors over had made a hopscotch path that led all the way up the block, and went up to 550 (which unfortunately is a fraction of the world’s largest). Still, they had fun with it, as did I in taking pics of Vanessa hopscotching up the sidewalk.
