We had over 6 inches of snow this past weekend. It looks so pretty out, even if it is only 4 degrees outside! And even though I got the car stuck--on my own yard--Saturday morning. I just couldn't get it to go in the garage, I slid backwards, sideways, finally ended up down by the barn and called Bill! Of course he drove it right up to the house and asked if I didn't know how to drive. I did notice our neighbors had cleaned out their driveways before their wives went away, but I didn't say anything.
Joy and I went to a piano concert Sunday afternoon after eating lunch at church served by the Senior High Fellowship. We went to the Adler Theater in Davenport to see Jim McDonough's "Holiday Grande 2010" concert. He can really play and sing. One interesting part of the concert is when he takes requests from the audience and then plays them one after another (maybe just a line or two) without skipping a beat. I don't know how that's done, you would have to think of the song, what key to play in etc. A good concert to see and it benefits Camp Courageous.
Since I was volunteering yesterday at school I got to see the matinee performance of the Lowden elementary school Christmas concert. The music teacher did a great job and the students used percussion instruments in a lot of the songs. They performed again last night. Today the music teacher will do it all over again at the Mechanicsville school.
Stay warm everyone.
Emily is ELEVEN!!!
