Fixing a mistake!

Hmmm! I must have done something stupid - and deleted the former post in which I had this photo posted.
Anyway -- here it is again -- with the UTexas flag in my front yard!

Anne's adventures in decorating!

Anne: So I decide to string lights on the stairs. I pull out some bundles and start untangling and plugging in to find strands that work.

Success!  I find two strands!

I begin!  And get ready to attach and plug in the next strand.

Crud!  This strand was lighting but now isn't!

Aha!  I see the problem!

My assistant looks innocently on as I try to find another strand that lights.

Choir concert last night

Last night, Kira and all the members of the Hildebrandt choir performed in the combined concert at KOHS's auditorium. There were choirs from KOHS, Hildebrandt, and three elementary schools. It was a wonderful evening ... all those talented kids!

Here's Kira with Hildebrandt's choir:

And here are Hildebrandt's combined treble choirs. Kira is at the very left of the front row of girls.

The very last song was performed by all five of the choirs together. For a few minutes, we could just barely see Kira ... and then the piano's top was raised and she was out of sight!

The following three photos show all five choirs as they were performing the last song.
