Summer is coming to a close and we are back in town for the remainder of it.  While our travels have been really fun, it’s time for a little rest before the orchestra season and fall lessons start back.  This is the last week of summer lessons and it is a busy time getting schedules together from our various schools in order to begin scheduling all of our students.

I am excited to start the season back up with the Monroe Symphony and I am also thrilled that my husband will be subbing with us for the entire season!  Our symphony is a finalist in a contest for free advertising for a year. If you have a spare moment, would you vote for us by clicking here and taking a very short survey?  It takes less than a minute and every little bit helps!

Aside from my musical endeavors, I am finishing up my fifth week of training for the Fort Worth Marathon in November.  Everything is going really well, despite the hot training conditions.  I am definitely thankful for the gym at this time of the year.

We had lots of fun visiting our family in Atlanta, Georgia.  We ended up going to a Braves game, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and the Georgia Aquarium.  The Braves won and I got to pet some stingrays!  My husband insists that we started the Braves winning streak.
