a home video and a story.

i almost choked on my mouth full of soup.  

it was a simple question asked by mountain man...

"what song did you practice today, boo?"

i coughed, scout smiled and we waited for her to answer.  boo, above everyone in the family, feels guilty for even thinking about telling a lie.

so she said, "just a song."

scout and i broke into a laughing fit, the answer so simple, boo's face was that of the best poker player.  i was seriously impressed with her skills. 

mountain man looked at us and all i could say was, "inside joke" while gasping for air.

you see, we had almost made it.  an entire month of secretly practicing their first official duet without being detected by daddy.

the girls wanted to surprise their daddy, on his birthday, by playing "Shout to the Lord" at church.  

and they did.  it was followed by a standing ovation and tears in many eyes.

and what was i stressed about anyway...keeping a secret, the girls' first public musical performance...?

come on was a piece of cake.  birthday cake.

i shot the video on our little point and shoot.  so please excuse the quality.  and for the record, it is a fiddle, not a violin :}
