Weekend birthdays are great, especially when they are followed by two whole weeks of holidays. I think we'd have to admit that there are some disadvantages to having your birthday fall a week before Christmas, but at least we're all in a celebratory mood. Happy Birthday Andrew!
You can't exactly tell but Bethany was feeling very nervous when this photo was taken. It was Thursday night and she was just about to perform in her first ever piano concert.
I was contemplating what would happen if she found that she couldn't play at all, but she controlled her nerves and played well.
Toby played brilliantly, of course, and received a special mention from his teacher. He just loves to play!
