Jessi’s Recital

Jessi playing, the three harpists at Doerre, and all of Miss Meghan’s harp students.

She played two solos (these recordings were actually recorded before at her lesson)

Then my favorite song – the girls trio!  They did such a fantastic job!


And Bella, crazy Bella, all of her crazy faces!! She loved all of the clapping!

Alexander Joseph Jian Fu Turpin

Finally, finally, finally Alex was legally adopted!!!

We all drove down to the Fort Bend Courthouse and Judge Ron Pope declared that he is ours!  Wahoo!!!

Becca couldn’t come.  She had an Economics Final and court is not an excused absence unless it’s your own court proceeding.  Oh well – we had plenty of people there! 

Welcome to the family sweet boy!!

Ball Girls Weekend

With Asia in the country, we women got together for the weekend.

I stayed up too late.  We did LOTS of shopping, well, my sisters did lots of shopping, I tagged along.  We ate.  We were massaged.  We laughed.  The laughing was my favorite part.

Orchestra Banquet

Becca’s last banquet.  I have never been able to attend before.  Very fun.  They have a nice dinner, awards, recognitions, all that stuff.  But they also have a fun nod to the Seniors.  They do a slideshow starting with baby pictures of the seniors.  So fun.  The kids try to guess whose pictures they are.  They also gave them a book with photos of their HS Orchestra experience.  Then the parents leave and the kids have a dance.
