Piano man

You may remember that Toby had his piano exam last week. He was hoping to get a B because the examiner he had is a very hard marker who doesn't hand out As very often. Today, Toby found out that he got an A plus! All the nervousness was worth it and we're very proud of him.

Bethany's class performed at the Junior School assembly this afternoon. She was very excited that Andrew and I could both make it to see her on stage.

They sang a song about Jesus and Zacchaeus. The kids dressed in green were Zacchaeus and climbed on the chairs and held branches. Because the whole room is lit, the kids could see their parents and wave.

As a little celebration, Toby and I are going to see The Amazing Spiderman together. Joss and Andrew went on the weekend when Toby was ill. I confess that I'd rather be seeing The Sapphires, but it wasn't me who got the A. I'll try not to read Bleak House on my phone.


  1. yay for toby! what an amazing result, piano exams can be so scary! bethany looks like she's born to be on stage. my first ever role in a school play was playing part of a rainbow, I'll never forget it - I was yellow!

  2. Toby's a top tinkler! Well done. Love Bop.

  3. Congratulations to Toby! How fantastic....

  4. Wow, that's awesome about Toby! (Also, I'm jealous you get to see Spiderman, I've been wanting to go...) :)
