Merry Christmas from the Lowe family! We've had an eventful 2009. Here are some highlights!
This year, Mary Beth danced in the 24th annual production of The Roar of Love here in Augusta. She was a cute pony! In addition to ballet, she takes tennis lessons and studies piano with mommy. The poor kid rarely has a chance to get to the piano to practice, though. Mommy keeps it busy with other students all afternoon!
We turned our backyard deck into a screened porch and added a patio this year. When the weather's nice, we love having our morning coffee there.
Laura's parents celebrated their 50th Anniversary this year! Mary Beth made them a big card that said, "Happy 50th Annibersary!" (sic) They framed it!
Mary Beth turned 7 this year and started 1st grade. Hard to believe! To celebrate, Daddy built her a very impressive swing set. It took 3 weekends, but he did it all by himself.
Laura continues to teach piano privately. Her studio is now operating at capacity with a waiting list, and she is on the board of the local chapter of Music Teachers Nat'l Assoc. She played a concert at St. John United Methodist as part of Augusta's Westobou Arts Festival in September. In October, she signed on as organist at Aldersgate United Methodist.
Kevin passed the licensing exams for his job last summer after nearly two years of classes and studying. He's now a senior reactor operator. Unfortunately, he is doing shift work, and that combined with a long commute means we don't see much of him during the week. But, at least when he's home, he's not studying anymore!
We hope that you all had a happy time during Christmas, and we wish you all the best in 2010!
