  1. I’m a Reformed Presbyterian.
  2. I’m bad at running and always have been.
  3. I’m bad at most any sport.
  4. My left arm is about an inch shorter than my right arm (I broke it 5 years ago. Long story…)
  5. I don’t know how to drive a car (at least, not very well).
  6. I speak with a Southern accent and am proud of it. As a matter of fact, I often wish my accent was thicker and less effected by whoever I’m around at the time.
  7. I get ticked off pretty bad when people make fun of Southerners (and the Southern accent in general), bluegrass, and… other things, too. 🙂
  8. I can be made to cry pretty easily.
  9. I can’t play violin.
  10. I don’t stay organized well.
  11. I’m extremely dramatic.
  12. I’m not as confidant and bold as I should be with my music.
  13. I get distracted easily. Very easily.
  14. I’m often too hard on my siblings, and probably friends, too. Sorry.
  15. I love where we live, but I can’t wait to sell it and move away…

I’ll tag just two folks for now:


Camille F. (just do it on a comment if you’d like.)

I guess that’s it. TTFN!

So, after showing the rather comical/bad/awful pictures below, I’ve decided to make up for it with some better pictures. The last photo, especially, in my last post, was awful!!! My sister doesn’t even look like that. Here, I’ll show you some better ones.


This is still sort of a silly one, but, that’s what you get when you try to get a 6 year old to pose. 🙂





Even this picture doesn’t do her credit. I don’t think I’ll be able to find one that does.

Ah, Picture Season Again

I think these photos will pretty well speak for themselves. 🙂 I’ll go youngest to oldest. See what you think.

Music Lessons

Lately, though not regularly enough, I have been doing piano/singing lessons with my 6yo brother. I’ve been trying to find ways to make it as interesting and as fun as possible – the last thing I want to do is make him hate piano, singing, lessons or even music in general. I’ve seen it happen to some people and it’s just sad.

So, since we’re entering the Advent season, I decided to go through my huge book of Christmas tunes and pick out a few fun ones that he and/or I could sing. We picked Silver Bells this morning. I don’t know if he’ll stick to it, but I think he likes the fact that both of us can sing it together. He’s so cute! I sit him up on the top of our piano and he sits there watching me as I play and sing, and, this time, as I try to teach him a few of the words.

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in Holiday style…” I began, and he tried to follow along. But, he stopped me to say something like,

“Oh! I thought it said ‘Three disciples, down the sidwalk, dressed in Holiday signs…”

Gotta love him.

Reformation Weekend

Friday evening we had a family barn dance in Centerville, officially starting up our Reformation Day celebrations. Our wonderful dance caller was Chrissy Davis-Camp. We’ve attended lots of her dances and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.



Looks like they’re enjoying it…


Nice face, Chris – and belt buckle!


Saturday afternoon we all came back together for more fellowship…


Including grilling… (thanks, guys!)


and burning last year’s Reformation Day trebuchet…

As we sat and listened to Pastor Lovett speak on the great reformer Martin Luther, we used the flames of the old Heritage trebuchet to warm us and… roast marshmallows for S’mores!

The next day was also filled with our usual Lord’s Day activities. What wonderful friends we have been blessed with!
