"Play" dates...

Fergies session...Dylan covering his face.
Haley may be 8yo but don't tell her that and don't tell her she's smaller than everyone else.

This is the child who, when at 5yo or 6yo fiddling with a group of adults at a session, never wanted to have a chair where her feet might reach the floor because "then everyone will know I am little." (Uh, what??!! Like they can't see that anyway??) Her feet are still swinging but if she sits on the edge of a chair and points her toes, they now reach the floor.

Haley has fun whether she is playing toys with friends or adults at an Irish session. It is all the same to her.

Yesterday, she wanted to go to an Irish session near her orchestra rehearsal but she really wanted one of her favorite fellow fiddlers, Paraic, to come. He only shows up at this session occasionally. It isn't a given that if we go he'll be there. So, she texted him to see if he could "come out and play with (her)."

He texted back a few minutes later saying he'd be there then came out in the pouring rain to play with Haley. I know I've said it before but I just love Irish musicians. They are some of the nicest people ever!
