Sarah - the Next Norah Jones

My sweet Sarah is composing.  She started taking piano about 4 years ago and has really taken to it with a passion.  She never ceases to amaze me with her ability to learn a new piece quickly, but then again, she practices daily, and sometimes several times a day.  Her dream is to attend Julliard and I am all for supporting her dreams.  Sarah is 14 and has been homeschooled since kindergarten and she will be starting 9th grade this fall.  These kids grow up way too fast, but anyone out there who has kids already knows that.  I'm so proud of her - can you tell?!!!  And I just wanted to share this with you because I believe she is going to be the next Alicia Keys or Norah Jones ...

Wait till those braces come off.  We'll have to fight the boys off with a rifle - and Adolf of course.

Daily practicing.  When she takes off the ear phones, the house is filled with beautiful music.

Sarah working on her composition.  She has already composed one song called "Spring Mystique" and I am going to record her playing it and post it here on Raisin Toast.  It is really cool to listen to.  Now she is working on another composition.

This is her 2nd year playing soccer too.  No matter what she does she really gets into it whole-heartedly.  She was kickin' some butt in this game.

So why am I sharing these things with the world?  Because while introducing you to my wonderful, fantastic, super-duper, magnificent, intelligent children, I am going to be adding a Category on Raisin Toast about my "Children" under "Family" and I am going to be adding a new section altogether on "Education" so that you can keep up with all the great things my children are learning. 

In the meantime, I wanted to introduce you to Sarah - my baby girl who is growing up waaaay to fast for her own britches and is smart as a whip.  I love her music and as soon as I can figure out how to work the dang recorder on our piano, I will record her music on CD.  Now how do I get it on iTunes?
