Proud Parent Moments

Leave a comment

Time for some parental bragging, because it’s been a big week around here in terms of teen accomplishments. On Thursday night, Chris performed at a concert at his school with jazz band, guitar ensemble and choir. He sang lead on three songs, back-up on a couple of others, and then his own band, City Kings, played a few songs during intermission. Here’s one of my favourites that he sang with guitar ensemble: “This Year” by the Mountain Goats.

Then on Saturday night, Emma received an very prestigious award: she was a winner in the Junior Fictional Prose division of the provincial Arts and Letters competition. Her prize-winning story can be read here, and you can also see a not-very-good-quality (because I was sitting too far back) video of her reading a selection from her story here:

I am so proud of these kids! They are creative, original, and I never know quite what they are going to come up with.
