It is the changing of life that reminds us we are still living.  It is the changes that sometimes make me the most sad.  I am sad and happy in the same moment.  Sad for the changes I do not like and happy for the changes that will make others more at peace.  It is […]

I just had to re-post the peacocks…I know how much Melissa loves those birds! The two newest SWEET 16 year-olds! Taylor is one of the most photogenic people, but this just doesn’t show it…great sunglasses, though! Be sure to visit the band web page to see the section photos from the clarinet section Halloween Party […]
