When Madeline was in 1st grade we watched the American Girl Samantha movie. At one point Samantha plays Bach's Prelude in C. We knew little about music at that time but I was impressed. I said to her, "If you can ever play that piece on the piano, I will take you out to do something super fun!" She had just started taking lessons and wasn't even taking them every week.
Well, wouldn't you know she just passed it in her Faber Book 4 this past week and so we went out to celebrate. Her first request was to bring her sisters along (although in the end Kendall voted to stay home and sleep ;)) and she wanted to shop and lunch.
What fun memories we made and we captured a few on the iTouch.
