    My oldest son pasted this on Facebook today--
    Traci and I just received word from Annie Wolaver Dupree (of the Annie Moses Band) that Jordan, Iris, and Gideon will begin lessons (and one class) at the Conservatory of Annie Moses next Tuesday! Jordan and Iris will study violin with Annie and Gretchen, and Gideon will study cello from Benjamin. Our hope and prayer is that their training will help them continue to learn how to use music as a vehicle to express their faith in Christ.

    He had posted this yesterday--
    Brought home a new song to Jordan and Iris yesterday ("Wood Splitter Fanfare" by Brian Balmages). They've worked on it for about fours hours since then (mostly by themselves, since they like song so much). I'm proud of their hard work.

    For those that do not know the Annie Moses Band (Christian band) here is one of their You Tubes Annie is the blonde on violin and I think Gretchen is on the mandolin. Gideon is our five year old and will start with the cello. He has a baby cello now.

    Sorry (kind of) for the bragging time.

    By the way, why did you go back to posting under screen name Growl instead of David?

    Growl is who you always were to me.

    Mostly because folks did not know me as David Shepherd as much. I started helping with some customer stuff and more customers knew me as Growl and I do not have to explain who I am as much! :)
