Just a quick picture from a few weeks ago, when one of the student groups I direct (a barbershop "quartet") sang the National Anthem at a Washington Capitals game at the Verizon Center. We had fun (and they did a great job)!

Yes, I'd love to!!

Yesterday I received something very interesting in the mail. I have never actually received anything just like it!


I guess I'll open it...

Exciting! I'll be there! What should I bring?

Bridget turns eleven

Since Bridget and her friend Brianna almost share a birthday (Brianna's is on the 9th of February and she turned 10 this year), they had their party together this year at our house.

Getting ready....

Musical chairs.

I contributed cupcakes and party favors of little notebooks and pens, and the girls made Valentines later on.

Anne made a lovely snack...

The girls try to figure out their party identities -- Bridget was Meg March, Brianna was Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Opening presents...

Anne wrote the girls' names on their notebooks and they stamped them.

Sunday was Bridget's actual birthday. Here she blows out the candles on her cake at the family party:
