Anyhow, I have been remiss in posting about our kids’ participation in All-County Band for Kanawha County! Abigail started lessons … Continue reading All-County Band

I am very embarrassed to admit it, but somehow I missed a year of writing…anything. You know, insert usual excuses here and all that.
