Recently we had to say goodbye to Ms. Helena, Paul's violin teacher, as she moved to Seattle. It's a good move for her as she will be able to play with the Seattle symphony and not commute to concerts like she was doing. For us it means sticking the violin in the closet or trying to find another teacher. As you can guess, there are few classical violinists in the big woods. Paul thinks he would like to make the leap and fiddle - just like on Hee Haw. I know I wouldn't have a problem finding a fiddle teacher in Kentucky but here ... hmmm. Paul has all the moves down to play fiddle - he likes to play fast and he holds his violin in a lazy, drooping, fiddling wannabe way which earned him no points with Helena. So this might work.
Only 7 more days till Kentucky! I will be taking my laptop as this is sort of a working vacation. I'll be visiting some interesting places - at least from a historical perspective. Can't wait!
God be gracious to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us.
