Life beyond the band

You'd be surprised how often life tends to revolve around band life, but with fall having arrived, time can be made for the often neglected things in life.

One of those is schoolin' kid-o's. Fall means new curriculum, shiny new pencils, a touch of butting heads now and then, and a lot of grace from God.

Last weekend we were also privileged to attend a concert and conference with the Maxwells from Titus 2, then we enjoyed the wonderful music of the Josties. It was nice to be the audience for a change and enjoy the music of a couple of other very talented family bands.

We brought home new CDs and new books to keep us busy, including Terry Maxwells all-powerful (and very intimidating) "Managers of their Chores". Perhaps I was persuaded to try it because I'm a glutton for punishment and I've not had a good inferiority complex in some time, or maybe it was because - live and in person - Terry Maxwell looked like a regular human instead of some super-human power of household management. If a regular human like her can design and write it, maybe a bunch of regular humans like us can make it work?

It's not been implemented yet, but Mary's cards are finished, the Twins' checklists are complete, and the rest is typed up and almost ready to go.

However, while hours are spent dividing up everything in a house into bite sized pieces, we are working towards the...

We have a couple new tunes we'll pull out for this one! Everyone is very excited. This is hopefully only the first of what will be a reoccurring event.

If you can't catch us there, we also have a wonderful Chili Supper for a great cause to support the Maranatha Christian Center Friday, November 5th. Chili Fest - in the gym beginning at 5:30 pm.

We are also planning our mini-tour through Texas and Arizona in early winter so spread the word! We'll be looking for playing opportunities anywhere between Austin and South Padre Island, as well as attending the South Texas GospelGrass and Arizona Gospel Grass. Let us know if you have any suggestions!

Happy Pickin'!
