Home Sweet Home!

 Thank you for all of your prayers during this seven week summer tour! God's faithfulness was evident in so many ways during the tour. When we came home though, our eyes met weedy gardens, dusty surfaces, mounds of laundry, stacks of mail, spider webs, and.... a dead mouse. (There was an active mouse sighted which hasn't been afraid to leave evidence of it's existence all over the house!!:):)) But with lots of hard work (and mouse traps!) we should be able to get this place back in order!
In case you didn't believe me, there actually WAS quite a lot of mail!!!

 On the first evening of our arrival home, we enjoyed a lovely supper with most of the family.
So many of hugs and kisses and snuggles with the babies we had missed so much!
Lots of fresh produce awaited us!
With some effort, this garden got cleared!!
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23

  3. I have a question... how do you practice music for concerts? How much time do you spend practicing music a day? Do you need to run through the whole program several times on different instruments every day?? And if you do, how do you find time to do that and balance the other responsibilities of life??? Thank you. :)

  4. We generally try to practice about half an hour five days a week of individual practice. This definitely doesn't always happen though! We always practice all together before a tour, and then, once we are on the road, we practice a bit before each concert. Balance can definitely be a struggle! It is important to evaluate each season of life and ask God for wisdom on how to invest your time.

  5. Wow! How do you decide which songs to practice each day? Do you have any tips on music practice for concerts? (I ask because I recently started playing music at some senior centers, and I've found that practicing for each performance can be quite taxing and overwhelming.)

    1. We generally just practice the songs that need the most work. We try to write out a list of songs that we will be practicing because this helps us be more effective. It can be overwhelming at the beginning because you haven't built a repertoire yet. I would say just start with a few songs, and then build your list a couple at a time.
