Well, I can finally report with confidence that the choir is well underway. I have 14 singers, and they are learning the music faster than I had anticipated (which is good since I picked more than I meant to). We rehearse weekly, and there will be a concert in December. For now life has slowed down for me a little. I am no longer stressed about getting more children signed up for choir, or where we'll hold rehearsal. Now I am more concerned with lesson plans. That's a piece of cake after everything else. Of course, the next round of stresses is just around the corner, with scheduling the concert, school tour, and ordering t-shirts. But who am I kidding? I love it! It is wonderful to stand in front of those kids and see them really enjoying themselves. Not to mention it allows me to use my talents, and be something more than just another mother every once in a while. I have been blessed with this opportunity, and I hope that it continues to go well the rest of this year. Thanks to everyone for all of their support and help in various ways. A special thank you to Mike. What a guy! He's been so helpful and supportive through all of this, which is wonderful as his approval means the most to me. And of course, a huge thanks to the other Michelle. Now more than ever I appreciate all you did to get this choir going. Wish me luck! It's going to be a great semester, I can tell!
