The concert of Jubilate Deo by Dan Forrest was performed at briarwoods high school in Auburn–and it will be posted on their web site if you’d like to see it. It was sung in Latin. Hebrew/Aramaic, Chinese, Spanish, English and African. It was great: full orchestra and a chorus of 150! All praising God 🙂

Astrid the Unstoppable

Astrid is part pippi longstocking and part Anne Shirley whose best friend is a 74year old neighbor. Astrid is also known as the little thunderbolt of Glimmerdal (for good reason), and her motto is “speed and self confidence”. It’s quite charming.

 

Enjoy!

 

Twins

All twins all the time around here lately but even before they arrived I wondered what will they be like?  Fraternal, obviously…

But boy and girl…

Clearly it was hard to imagine what they would be like.

 

Soon twins began showing up everywhere

And the day before induction, we went to Walmart with Teresa but no emergency delivery there… Thank goodness…

Our very favorite guest: a fully cooked smoked turkey from Costco. Game changer.
