This last year has been a year of blessings and changes and we give all the glory to God Barb’s Mother went home to be with the Lord, on April 27th. She wanted to go so we
considered it a blessing. All three of her children were with her and it was an amazing time for all of us to connect! We comforted her, sang her favorite hymns, read Scripture to her, and kept her as pain free as possible. We found a station that had her kind of music. The kind where George Beverly Shea sang. It was awesome!

Barb’s son, David, married the most wonderful woman, Nicole Marie Moore, on June 24th! She is from Lansing, Michigan and the wedding was held outside at the English Inn, in their spectacular English Garden. Her father married them. Dave is employed by L-3 Communications and Nickie works as a Project Mgr for Fidelity. They live in Cincinnati. Nickie is every mother’s dream daughter-in-law!

Jonathan moved to the Denver area after working in Bolivia for two years. He had to come home due to a case of Hepatitis A. He is doing much better and we are encouraged that he now has more ups than downs. Christie lives in Wheaton and continues to work with the UK’s National Express Group – US division of Durham School Services. Barb continues to teach piano, work with Treasured Promises at Church and be involved with her small group Bible Study of 12 years.

We love you all and consider it a joy and a blessing to have you in our lives.
Merry Christmas! Love, the Watson’s

Another year, another piano recital! Everyone was very excited about performing this year and played beautifully. Performing were those 5 years old up to 80! This is always exhilarating for a teacher and reinforces my love for my job. I love these kids and love seeing them progress.

I have also added a new venue to my job. It's a group class called Music for Little Mozart's It provides appropriate classroom music instruction for four, five and six years old. It is a comprehensive approach to music learning that includes singing, listening, structured and expressive movement, rhythm activities, playing classroom instruments, and visual representations of notation. Each of the three books in the series includes ten lessons. Here are the children in my present session:
