Tonight was Thea's first violin recital. She's been taking lessons twice a week since the beginning of school, so only a few months. She can already read music, and has progressed past just plucking the strings. She even had a solo, unlink any other string player! I couldn't be more proud.

Mike and I love taking the kids to openings at the museum where he works. We do it a couple times a year, and it's always a blast. The kids are very well behaved and excellent company, and it's great that they get to do something that is unique to our family.
At this opening last week, the museum had a photobooth kiosk by the dessert table, so we took our picture a couple of times. It didn't have much of a timer before the camera went off, and I kept having weird faces. I think here I'm saying, "Oh, shoot, was everyone ready?"

We said goodbye to November at barmini. It was a lovely night.
We parked by the National Archives. It's a beautiful building.

Thea's science fair experiment this year is on genetics. Mike got her a bunch of PTC test strips to find out which of our friends are supertasters, who would taste extreme bitterness on the paper, and who among us is a "nontaster" and unable to taste anything at all. Thanksgiving was a perfect time to test it, though it was also sort of mean to the supertasters among us.
I seem to be a medium taster. It was bitter and unpleasant, but it wasn't unbearable. Probably predictably, our Thanksgiving cooks are all supertasters.
