K-State wins the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl

Although I couldn’t watch the game because I was working in the ER, I’m pleased to report that Kansas State handily won their first bowl game in 11 years. They dominated Michigan all around. Jake Waters and Tyler Lockett gave glimpses of what is to come next year.

Looking forward to watching more than the highlight reel from I’ve got it DVR’d and am excited to watch us win the game.

Kansas City Symphony Chorus Christmas Festival

I have spent the last week in a grueling schedule of rehearsals and performances with the Kansas City Symphony Chorus. We had rehearsal every night in the week and then performances Thursday through Sunday (including 2 on both Saturday and Sunday).

Despite being completely worn out, I take great comfort in knowing that my musical offering contributed to the holiday tradition for many people. For many of them, it’s the only time they hear the Symphony and experience the grandness of the Kauffman Performing Arts Center and Helzberg Hall.

By the way, I’m on the 2nd row, 4th in from the right.

Better late than never…

So it’s been 6 weeks since my last post. Did you ever get so far behind in something that it almost seemed easier to just let it go? Every time I thought about trying to get a new post up, I just thought about all the things that I’ve not posted about.

To point – since the last post:

1. Anna, Linda, and I have all had birthdays.
2. KSU played a few more games and finished 7-5 and are going to the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl
3. Several music performances by both girls and Linda
4. A few Kansas City Symphony Chorus performances
5. Visits from several family members from both sides of the family
6. Lots of incidental things that were worthy of discussing, but never were discussed

I’m going to try very hard to stay up with this blog. I know there are only a few people that actually read it, but I find it’s a good place to keep memories of the family. So – here’s to working harder on keeping this thing up to date.

You might find some posts in the near future discussing things that happened over the past 6 weeks – better late than never!
