hmmm . . . I wonder. . .
Here's Dave. He's not on the front row, so you have to look for him, kind of "Where's Waldo" style.
Then there is Rachel. Her piano teacher coerced her to enter a competition on a county wide community college level. She didn't want to, but relented. She tied for first place in the piano division, got to perform at the Herberger Theater downtown and received a check for $300. Go figure!
Here is the sad thing. Right before Rachel performed, there was a very specific announcement to the audience that there should be no pictures taken, copyright laws blah, blah, blah. Well, I surmised that Beethoven's copyrights have well passed their expiration dates and by definition a video is not a "picture". Nevertheless, I was afraid one of the elderly woman theater hostesses would seize my camera and put me in cuffs so I sort of hid the camera close in front of me. The camera's focus feature captured the silhouette of the head in front of me therefore I didn't realize it wasn't focused on Rachel whatsoever so she was left in a complete video blur. Sorry Rachel.
Afterwards, she had to sign some autographs for her fans (well, her aunts . . . but sometimes aunts are the best kind of fans).
Roxanne made a video the same night as Melanie at the talent show. She's got some mad acting skills, but just prefers that I don't blast it across my blog. It was actually kind of funny. They dressed as a tribute rap band and spoofed Melanie and Rachel's act. But on an unrelated topic, doesn't she look so cute heading off to prom? Last but not least - Brady is a boy after my own heart. He stays out of the limelight at all costs. The last video we took of him performing for the camera was, oh . . . probably 3rd grade.
