We have been out taking pictures in the beautiful weather. A post of John’s photos will be coming shortly!

This one was a wonderfully busy weekend that bled over into the next week.

Friday: John, Katie, Bec, Ben, and Emi, gave their term two consort recital (feat. Owen, tenor, and Ben, continuo organ). The music was stunning and their delivery shone. It was so much fun to see how they had grown as an ensemble over the term. I just couldn’t help smiling when they performed two pieces semi-staged and off-copy. Delightful fun!

That evening, we all attended Even Song at the Minster and then popped off to dinner. ‘Twas a good day!

Saturday: The day of Ben’s 23rd birthday :p we all went out to Yo! Sushi. What a fun place! It is one of those sushi restaurants that has the conveyer belt with different shush on it. When you see one you like, you just pluck it from the belt and eat it!  The servers were wonderful too! We asked if we could have a birthday cake there and they said, “Sure! Would you like candles?” They turned out the lights and we sang! York is pretty neat!

Sunday: Lazy day and lots of visiting.

Monday: This day started out just like Sunday, very nice and lazy, and ended with us chopping up a tree. We helped one of John’s professors take down a tree to the trunk in his garden.

Today(Wednesday): House cleaning and grocery shopping are in order. Happy Spring Break 2016!
