Pocohontas Middle School
Beginning Chorus and Band Concert

The beginning chorus in concert.

The woodwinds are introduced during the Beginning Band concert. 

Among the audience was Ferris Jarrar's aunt and cousin.

Ferris with his trumpet. I don't believe I've heard a beginning band that sounded as good as they did three months after first picking up their instruments. Kudos to the band and their teacher.

Children watch the as Advent candles are lit at Cambridge church.

Ron Wilson speaks about international efforts at Cambridge church.

Tobie looks out on the first snow of the season. It was an evening snow, just a light dusting but beautiful and exciting.

It lasted through the morning. Some remain in the deep shade.

Liam McClean is fast becoming one my favorite subjects. Here the toddler helps his father Price put tables away at Cambridge church. Later in the evening while I talked on a mobile phone, he wandered about imitating me, talking on a toy cell phone.

Sylvia Hobgood lights the first Advent candle of the Christmas season at Cambridge church as daughter Casey, left, and husband Bill, right, look on.
