I also wanted to let you know that Karen loved the cover! The back copy was shortened a bit from that last photo I posted, but it is en route to the publishing company right now! It was a great experience for me because it had been awhile since I'd worked on a book cover design and I plunged right back into playing with fonts and learning the latest Adobe Illustrator program. Though I felt like I needed a nap today, it was also really energizing to be in such a creative mode all week long! Balancing parenting and short creative deadlines is such a juggling act-- I appreciate those of you who do it regularly! Back to regular life now ;)

Caroline's Summer Orchestra wrapped up tonight with their concert! It was so wonderful to hear all of these kids playing together. The music was fabulous and it was such a great experience to be able to play every day together for two weeks straight! She learned 6 pieces for her part of it. I am so proud of all these kids-- they will be the ones to appreciate the music programs in the schools when they are adults and to hopefully support local arts programs. I even hope some of them continue with making their own music into adulthood. Time to get out the classical cd's again and listen to some good music!
