Sounds like we might get some snow this weekend. I wish it would just slip on by this time I think.

Suffice it to say I didn't do very well this year. I shot a respectable first round of 140 which put me in the top 5. My second round was a dismal 88 which bumped me out of the top 5.

Here are the top two finishers. They tied in the final round and each shot one more arrow to break the tie.
Marvin on the right came in first.
Roger on the left was second.
Good job guys!

Tapestry Chamber Singers 2009 with Lloyd Kauffman

Old hymns shaped into rich works of art has long been the outpouring of Lloyd Kauffman's musical giftings. Raised in Michigan, and schooled in Music Education at Eastern Mennonite College and Ohio State University, Kauffman taught music and directed the chorale at Rosedale Bible Institute in Irwin, Ohio, from 1972 - 1995. More recently he has directed a number of choir tours in Germany and Poland, and is presently Chair of Choirs at Shenandoah Christian Music Camp in Harrisonburg, VA. His many choral settings of familiar hymns have often been used, and always loved, by other choirs throughout the Mennonite world.
Tapestry Chamber Singers was formed by the Nathan Good family in 2003 as a group of friends and acquaintances from a variety of states who enjoy singing hymn-style and choral music. Rehearsals and touring were conducted in both 2003 and 2005. Now, after several years of rest, the choir is forming once again in collaboration with Lloyd Kauffman to do a recording project featuring his hymn arrangements which will complement a published set of his music being made available to the general public in the near future. A weekend tour will follow.

Zehr Vacation

This year we decided to have a 'staycation' which seem to be quite popular this year. We decided to stay at my parents house. We had lots of things planned, but the weather did not cooperate very well. It rained most of the time we were there.

Bedtime stories with Grandma.

We spent some time doing outside cleanup. We were picking up sticks, cleaning gutters & some outside furniture.

Oops, these pics are out of order, oh well... Sierra learning how to play 'Amish golf.'

Ben celebrated his birthday while we were there. The golf game was one of his gifts which got many hours of use while we were together.

Ahhhh, nice weather! We went to feed the fish & geese at Pymatuning.

Getting alittle exercise before our rainy picnic.
We enjoyed having several families join us.

It was a fun vacation & we look forward to another one in 2 yrs!
