a whirlWIND

Since my last post so much has happened [as is typically the case]. So, for those of you that have been left in the dark...BUCKLE UP! :) I'm going to break this down into two posts, just so it's easier to tell what is going on, and will give you a good chance to take a break and grab a cup of coffee [speaking of which, I saw a bumper sticker that said, "The coffee isn't working; Get out the jumper cables!" Perfect.]

This first post is dedicated the last week.

At the beginning of the week, Brent and I were able to make a trip downtown to the National Quartet Convention. A couple from my church back home has season ticket's to the yearly show that comes to Louisville. They weren't going to be able to come until Wednesday for the week long event, and so they sent Brent and me their tickets. We were able to go on Tuesday evening.
When we parked, we knew we were going to be in company unlike us... here is one of the bumper stickers on a car parked next to us:

It says "Happiness is being Gran'ma and Gran'pa." That's okay. The part that made us laugh was the custom made decal of picture of them with all of their grandkids. Just a little over the top.

So this was our first clue we were going to be some of the youngest ones there... and we were. But that was kind of fun. We had great seats and some of the groups were wonderful. Our favorite group was the "Tally Trio." I was able to take a little video, but I can't guarantee how great the sound will be:

All in all though, it was a really fun date night for us [and it was only about 15 minutes from our apartment]! Micah's church choir was coming to sing in the show on Friday, and although Beck and Joan [Brent's parents] also came in on Thursday [more about their trip in the next post], we were able to steal her for a nice supper at The Old Spaghetti Factory downtown, right by the river.

I kept thinking of all of you Schoons that would have absolutely loved the event. Wish you could have come with us! And thanks again, Marsha and Gary... that was very thoughtful!
