Another unapologetic Mashley promo post.
Well, my daughter and her singing friend, Ashley, finally got to perform in a public forum — the Notre Dame Seminary Annual Talent Show. Very generously, the seminarians (who watch their videos) decided to invite them to come join in what is always a seminary-only show.
Patti and I, along with Maria’s sister, Catherine; brother, Michael; my Mom; and several of Maria and Ashley’s friends all came to enjoy and support them. The seminarians and priest faculty were so incredibly welcoming and supportive and enthusiastic. When I asked her if she was nervous, Maria said, “Once we got out there, no! They’re all like my big brothers! They’re awesome!”
I couldn’t imagine a better first experience of public performance!
The performance is full of smiles and laughter and cheers and on-demand encores.
Patti and I were so proud.
I am having a busy week that has not allowed me any time to write posts, but this one was easy. Enjoy:
