Saturday, a group of 12-15 from church are going to see another member’s NYC debut as a tenor at Lincoln Center. He is singing in a production of King Arthur that removed the dialogue and adding some dancing. Should be fun.

    Have a good weekend!

  2. Happy birthday to Sam! Wow! Impressive cake! Marissa is going to have to teach me how to do that! I can’t believe I’m just now seeing your blog…I’m a little slow.
