Last night Lydia made her debut on stage at the International Academy Talent Show! The plan was for her to sing "Twinkle Twinkle" and "Jesus Loves Me" with Daddy, but she was a little too distracted to sing much. She was more interested in going up and down the stage stairs. The audience started to sing with her, and she actually started to sing into the microphone, but when a feedback noise startled her, she got a bit distracted again. So, she ran upstage, but then ran back clapping and cheering at the end of the song. Not bad for her first performance! Her cuteness still scored some points with the judges!
Aaron played one of the judges- the "mean" one that always gave low scores:
We put a clip of the end of Lydia's performance on YouTube, so you can check it out with the link in the sidebar.
In other news, we recently returned from a trip to Moscow for a few days. Here are some pictures:
