Grace has done a phenomenal job learning to play the flute. I played the flute for three years of high school. I just love the flute too. Grace made her own decision to learn this tricky instrument. She entered the local solo/ensemble competition in February. She and her partner earned a Superior rating, the highest rating possible. We are very proud of her. I hope you enjoy the duet and please comment on it!

Fun, Fun, Fun! in the Mexican Sun!

We and our dear family friends, the Raleys, went with us south of the border on Spring Break. We had a fabulous time. We were able to stay in Arizona, going to and from Puerto Penasco, Mexico. We stayed in Chandler, Arizona with my sister Bert and her husband John. The highlights of our trip included seeing and hearing our mariachi band while we were eating at one of our favorite restaurants, eating lots of delicious Mexican food and seafood, swimming, sunbathing and sand castle-building on the beach, kicking back and relaxing, and also playing board games and card games together. Oh, and we mustn't forget shopping! We got jewelry, t-shirts and seashells at the market.
