Like Night and Day

Admittedly not my best photography – these are cellphone photos (I sent my camera with Daughter Trinidad to Hawaii – she’s currently on a trip there with her high school marching band) – but I thought I would share the difference here between yesterday afternoon and pre-dawn today.

This morning – by daybreak there was 4 inches of snow on the ground

Poor Trin – she’s been wishing for snow for weeks!

It’s not much fun to skate on ice that looks like this:

The Sound of Music

For the weekly photo challenge: Delicate

This year there are two flutists in my family (as well as two teenagers) and sometimes our schedule doesn’t afford time for separate practice. In order for Trinidad and Rane┬áto practice separate pieces of music┬ásimultaneously, each girl must use a gentle breath and delicate fingering.

Many thanks to Gilliam Music and Norman Public Schools for their assistance in providing flutes for these girls to play ­čÖé
