An apology, and horn tootin'!!

First off, I want to apologize for the long silence! My computer was giving me fits! I could only get on it for about 5 minutes then it would lock up! I finally got desperate and purchased an external hard drive so I could dump some files to make more room on my computer, thinking that maybe the fact that I had less than 1 GB of space left on it was the problem!! I was able to free up about 25GB of space and it worked for about a day, then started locking up again! I finally got online long enough to find something to download to fix the problem. So far, so good! Now on to tooting a horn! My 11 year old daughter, Madison, is in choir at school and they were able to try out to sing a solo at the spring concert. She tried out along with 22 other kids from grades 6,7, & 8. She is in 6th. They were judged and could receive a score up to 100. She got a 96, the highest score out of all the kids that tried out!!! So, needless to say, she got to sing a solo. (they chose 3 soloists) She chose to sing " Wishing you were somehow here again" from Phantom of the Opera. Just a quick sidenote...all my kids love that movie.....is that normal? Even my 7 year old son loves it and sings all the songs from it! I'm thinking they are a little geeky or something! Anyway, I have a video of her singing!! I know everyone in the world wants to hear her sing!!! The video quality isn't that great, and it is a little hard to hear the piano but, she still sounds great!! LOL So here it is!!! If you want, you can leave her a nice comment!! :)
