Then, she practiced playing her piece for the camera....
Since her big moment was scheduled for 10:57 (let's be exact here), I started washing the cabinets in the kitchen. (Heck, we've got plenty of time.) Then, as always happens, I got slightly carried away and pretty soon we were running a little late. Oops!
And there's always the line for registration when you finally get in the door...
But we made it in time and 5 minutes later....it's all over. The memorizing, the months of practice, the nervous anticipation....it's all over.
And for what? The fame... the glory...heavens, no! It's the post-contest trip to the local grocery store for a hard-earned treat!
We got a little goofy in the store and Therese even insisted on paying for her own grape pop. All-in-all it was an exciting morning
and even more fun since we were able to share it with you!
