Another Proud Mom Moment

Beautiful music coming from our barn

My son assembled a small 'choir' of saxophones and though they were just sight reading on their first practice, the sound sent shivers through my spine!

I'll post recordings when they hone in on their favorite songs

Proud Mom Moments

Congratulations to my son with a new Pole Vault PR: 12 feet!!

A huge thanks to the pole vault team at a competing HS who have stepped in to help guide my son's HS team who lost their coach early in the season. I love the camaraderie between athletes that transcends school boundaries - Track is a GREAT sport!!
