The Way Ladies took a trip to St. Louis recently. Hosted by my in-laws, Joe and Linda. We had a wonderful time.Sunday we stopped at an international market for some goodies. You can't tell in this picture so much, but they are sampling the amaretti cookies Meredith picked up. :)
I am so thankful I have such wonderful in-laws! They opened their home to us and were perfect hosts, and I was so glad Linda could spend the day with us Saturday, we all had a blast! This weekend was the president's concert at school. Something I've participated in every spring since I started back to college. It's put on by the choir and orchestra, so I kind of have to, but I always love the music and being a part of it. I don't always love the long hours of rehearsal right at the end of the semester when I should be studying and so forth, but I soon forget that when we are in the moment. It is very frustrating at times to be around students who seem to think it is a waist of time. People in choir are there because they are music majors or they WANT to be there. GRRRR... Sometimes I wanted to turn around and tell some of them clam up and enjoy it or go away you're ruining for the rest of us! But I was good and just held my tongue. This year we did Elijah, oh, it was neat! I love Mendelssohn's music and this was one of the best, the harmonies and melodies and mingling and intertwining of voices and instruments is superb. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to participate in this sort of music making.
