Marching Band

This weekend is the last regular performance before Regionals and hopefully State.
This will be the first time the band performs their entire show.

The band has worked hard to complete their 4 part show and Madison has loved being a part of this fantastic group.

Here are a few pictures.... from the last competition.

Madison is the top baritone player

 And she is one of these... your guess is as good as mine :)
The hardest part of Marching Band for this Momma is not being able to tell which one is my Madi. I realize that the whole point is for her blend in and not stand out but it makes this Momma's heart just a smidge anxious.
But anxious or not, this Momma is proud! Madison is working hard and loving her experience.

"Go forth" Madison! We are proud of you!

Apple Festival

Last weekend we had the joy of having our dear friends Steffan and Eva (and their adorable sons Julian and Jakob) come to visit us from Germany. 

Steffan and Rob were roommates in college at the University of Florida. 

For the last 12 years we have been blessed to visit with one another (alternating us to Germany and them to the US). 

This year they wanted to finally see our new house (we moved in 4 years ago). 

Besides visiting and playing games together, we enjoyed a trip to the local orchard for the Apple Festival. 

We enjoyed a trek through the VERY muddy corn maze  and a ride on the hayride. We opted to not head into the also muddy fields to pick a pumpkin

 Time for a few pictures before eating some tasty treats- apple dumplings and caramel apples
 We are so blessed to call these people are friends.

Until our next visit :)

Lillian's Field Trip

Lillian went with her 3rd grade class to the Fairgrounds. They had a great time.
