The second full week of September is always an exciting time around our house. Katherine's referral came that week, the day we first heard her name and saw her sweet little face. Rachel joined our family that week. (We flew to China three years ago today!) And this is always the week our town hosts a huge bluegrass festival, so the whole community is throwing a party. There is music in our hearts for many reasons.
Today was Bluegrass Sunday at our church. It's one of the best Sundays of the year! (And for all of you who think bluegrass is just duelin' banjos, the Bluegrass Festival has banjos, but also folk, "old time", cowboy, and my favorite - Celtic music.) A loosely organized group from the festival campgrounds showed up to play hymns and Irish jigs and reels during the service.
