Sunday brought Mikayla's final recital of the school year. She's come so far in her piano skills, I'm super proud of her for sticking with it and progressing. It's something that I never did! In fact, in the final picture, you'll see her sporting a certificate and a few treats - she earned those by getting the full amount of points at each lesson (though, I contest the fact that she didn't REALLY do her full amount of practice time.....she faked it well enough, I guess).
Coming to cheer her on this time was Grandma Liupakka. I feel like it's been forever since we've seen her as she's been traveling all over the states visiting family and friends and attending her 50 year college reunion. Go Bemidgi State Beavers!
Once again, Mikayla did a solo piece, and then did a duet with Christina. It was a really jazzed-up version of B-I-N-G-O - I think it was their best joint performance yet!
Finally, this is a picture of the two of them with their teacher, Crystal. What a talented, patient, wonderful gal she is.
