Cody had his second ever violin recital today. He played a song called, "Long, Long Ago." He did a great job and we're so proud of him and his progress over the last year.
It's amazing to think that just a year ago he was playing his first little song on that tiny little violin. Now, a year letter, he's playing a bigger violin and has even grown a couple of inches.
So much has happened over the past year, and yet it hasn't been all that long ago.
I will always remember these precious memories and how I held my breath with every stroke of his bow, and fingering of the strings.
I will never forget how I shut off the camera before he took his big bow because I couldn't wait to cheer for him.
I will always remember looking at the family who was sitting in front of me whose little one played the exact same song Cody played a year ago. It was her first violin recital.
And I will remember how I fought back tears thinking of how fast this year has gone.
And how much I am already looking forward to hearing him play again next year.
And how proud Poppop would be if he could hear him now.
