The night that Desheng Darling had long awaited FINALLY arrived...Her first concert!
Can’t you just see the excitement in her eyes?
Doodlebug was also in the concert and played her little heart out. She wasn’t nervous at all and loved the attention she got!
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on the blog, but I’m taking violin lessons TOO! I know it sounds crazy, but I’m loving it…so… I got to be in my first concert (since high school) too. It was really a lot of fun! And the best part about being “an old beginner” is that you just don’t care too much about what the others think..The younger ones sitting beside you are too polite to say anything rude to the elderly (me)when I miss a note and the other "old beginners” can’t hear very well so they don’t say anything either. LOL
The hardest part of the concert was knowing that DD was seated totally out of my reach, totally out of hearing distance, and totally out of my evil eye controlling look. She was seated right on the outside edge, about two feet from the audience. If you know DD, you will understand my concern. She is SO impulsive. You just NEVER know what she is going to do or say! Except for playing her own little tune while everyone else was quiet, there were no major problems.
Sister and Brother Darling sat with Daddy Darling. The girls were thrilled that they came.

Desheng Darling is actually doing very well on the violin. She plays so much better than I. It’s pretty humbling at times to be outplayed by a 6 year old. LOL I was practicing the other day when DD walked in. She said, “Mom, remember when you whistled that song? You whistled it REALLY well. I think maybe you should just whistle, rather than play the violin at the concert.” Hmmmm…I guess that pretty much sums up the way she feels about my late in life musical endeavor. LOL
