I love it.
We accidentally matched on the day of Lucy’s piano recital.
And I wanted to share that picture in the midst of trying to sort through so many wedding prep pictures (that I’ll try to post tomorrow) because of three things:
1) Look at that smile. Oh boy, that girl is just a light. She reminds us that her name actually means “light” (Latin origin) on a regular basis…she wishes our family “theme” were still the “Be the Light”… one from a couple years ago (we just introduced the new one for this year and she was lamenting a little). But all that is aside the point…basically I just wanted to point out that pretty smile. Because sometimes it gets lost in the shuffle of pre-teenagerhood and BBS, and I love when it comes out.
2) I need to weave in the younger girls here in the spotlight because there’s a LOT coming about Max and Abby 🙂
3) There’s something in Lucy’s mentality that makes her a performer. Not an enthusiastic and dramatic one, but one that has no problem just standing (sitting in this case) up in front of people and doing exactly what she’s practiced. No mistakes, no added excitement, no frills, she just goes up there and plunks out those tunes with no mistakes, stands up and looks at the crowd with a mini bow and sits right on down.
Love you Lu!
