Deferred Compensation at its best!!!

This is my latest "project". Our daughter (high school freshman) was accepted to play with our local university orchestra. The first performance was the other night and was it breathtaking. With presentations from Brahms, Sherwood Forest, Phantom of the Opera and others, I sat in awe of the years of preparation and study along with the hours of practice that all the performers pour their hearts into. This was our daughter's first "grown up" (for lack of a better term) event and did she look grown up! We are so proud of you sweetheart. Sitting in the audience made all the hours of lessons, practice (sometimes involving nagging) of the past 9 years seem worth it all. Kudos to you and Mr. "D"!
