Piano Recital

I have been teaching piano for over seven years now.  There is nothing more that I love then teaching my students.  I feel like they are my own kids.  I love hearing about there lives, and watching them grow up and become great pianist.  I had my last recital before I leave on my mission.  A lot of my students didn't know that I was leaving because I made it a surprise.  As my last student Mckayla played an amazing song I just sat there and cried one because she does such an amazing job, and two because I had to say goodbye to my students.  I announced that I was going on a mission and cried like a baby.  Don't get me wrong I am so excited to go on a mission, but I am also so sad to say goodbye to my kids.  Being a teacher has been such an amazing experience, and I have loved every minute of it.  
Kassi has been my student since day one.  I remember her first lesson.  She was five years old, and cute as ever.  Now look at how beautiful she is.  Kassi is a huge example to me.  I have to brag about her for a minute.  She played on a Club soccer team, and her team was playing on Sunday.  Kassi parents left her to make the decision whether or not to play.  Kassi chose not to play.  What an amazing girl she is.  I am so proud of her, and love her so much!! 

My amazing students minus 4
They all did so great!!! I was one proud TEACHER!! Each and everyone of them have played a huge role in my life, and I don't know where I would be without them.
