Instead of having a recital this year, Nicki opted to sing in a competion festival that her music school puts on. She sang "Hero", by Mariah Carey. She didn't place, but did get an Honorable Mention. As "MOM"...I thought she did great. I am supposed to think that. :) She was disappointed and wished that she would have placed. The only other talent show she was in, she placed 3rd, *out of 4*, and she said this time...
"I just wish I had improved. This says I haven't improved at all." She was quiet the rest of the day. Sometimes things like this are good. She is a determined girl, so maybe it will make her work harder to get what she wants.
The judge said she was out of tune, and it threw her off not to be with the music. I recorded it, but for some reason my camera was set to a timer, and during the recording it shut off after each minute! So, I have 4 clips that I will try to piece together. The first picture here says "Movie", but it is not a movie. Just pictures.
Anyways...we were very proud of her. We think she did a FABULOUS job...and if anything...I admire her for just getting up in front of people. Not something I would do.
Receiving her "Honorable Mention" trophy.
Her first trophy.
This is Nicki's singing teacher, Stacy. Nicki absolutely
LOVES her!! She has been so great, and Nicki has
learned so much from her.

Finally finishing up our first cut...we are making grass silage here.
These are a few of the windrows...
The drivers take it to Tony in the bunker, where he "pushes up". He uses the forks on the loader to push up the silage, and while doing that he drives over top to pack it down. We will do this the rest of the summer and this will be some of the feed that we feed the animals.
Sometimes the kids miss their dad like crazy, and he has been working many long hours. They take every moment they can just to be with him...
