I don’t think there’s any other way to describe the day as anything short of spectacular.
It was just that much fun!
Motivational session was great and such a rush.
Then, into the teaching part of the day was outstanding with students grabbing eagerly onto new techniques and progressing beautifully.
A super surprise awaited me on the front porch. What a wonderful, touching surprise.
Amanda Berlon has been a friend since around 2003 when her eldest son, Zach “Ginger,” became a piano and voice student. Zach was in choir and show choir with my son, Matthew, and Amanda and Scott’s you get son, Caleb, was in the same grade as my third son, Jose.
Amanda was always my go-to mom in the early years; she just always knew what she was doing in the preteen and early teen era. Even if she wasn’t sure about something, I trusted her.
Amanda is also one of those folks that doesn’t back away from tackling any demanding project from redoing their kitchen (my kitchen redo followed shortly after theirs), to various house and yard projects, juggling her position at Miami Valley Hospital, to being the ultimate soccer and choir mom.
My surprise was this beautiful stein featuring aviation through the years. It’s gorgeous and the first stein I’ve ever owned. I love it!!!
Thank you, so much, Amanda!
Tomorrow is another packed day and I’m ready to charge into it but first, I must sleep. I’m still charged from the morning motivational session, teaching, and being so honored with Amanda’s beautiful gift.
What a damn spectacular day!
