March Madness...

No, I don't follow basketball :) But the title of this post pretty much sums up our lives over the past month. Here's what we've been up to:

*3/6-8: took a trip to Grand Island/Lincoln for our niece's 4th birthday (happy late b-day Alexis!)
*3/13-14: to Lincoln to watch one of my students compete in Poetry Out Loud
*3/17: Nate had a 9-12 choir concert
*3/19-20: state speech at UNK (we took 12 kids...almost all of them were double entered and we came home with 3 medals!)
*3/20-21: Nate hosted Southwest Conference Fine Arts Festival (my old choir director...Fred Ritter...who also happens to be my best friend's dad was the clinician for the choir! Celeste and Scott came to stay with us that night :)
*3/24: Nate had a 6-8 choir concert
*3/28: Nate hosted a middle school music contest
*Monday nights: practice with the youth praise band
*Tuesday nights: class
*Wednesday nights: play for youth group

On top of all of this we have been trying to get a youth praise band together at our church to play for youth group on Wednesday nights, I'm taking a grad. course, and starting next week...we will be Sunday school teachers! Whew! Needless to say, we are READY for summer!!! Although it seems like we are gone so much, I wouldn't change it for the world. I'm so happy we have the opportunities to get involved with the youth in our community. Anyway...feel free to check out the photos!
