As the second half of July is going to be devoted to the big Kitchen Renovatioin, I’ve got to keep these goals manageable. As it is I’m going to have to be really nice to hubby so he works alone some while I put some work into Dyeing 103!

The other big thing that’s been happening is Liam’s European Concert tour! The orchestra has been blogging every day which has been so awesome to see where they’ve been. Most exciting has been the four concerts they’ve played:

Schloss Schleissheim near Munich, Germany:

What an amazingly ornate place, it defines “Baroque” doesn’t it?


You can see Liam in the back row towards the right, he’s the tallest kid and next to the left-hand side of the right arch.

The Mozarteum in Saltzburg, Austria:

The Mozarteum is a famous conservatory in the city of Mozart!


Teatro Verdi in Padova, Italy

I think this was my favorite concert venue. Tickets to this event were sold out weeks ago, they were the final concert in an International Music Festival. I can only imagine how thrilling it would be to play Verdi (the overture to La Forza del Destino) in this theater dedicated to Verdi, in the part of the world that venerates this wonderful composer!!



Norcia, Italy

Their final concert was “al fresco” at this quaint village in the Umbrian region of Italy.


Apparently, some of the kids are on a quest to have gelato in every Italian city they stop at, I am betting that Liam is one of them!!! Here they all are, sitting in some unknown Italian Village:


Although I can’t wait to hear all about it, I hope he enjoys the rest of the trip – the last stop is Rome!!!

  1. Oh, my…how exciting for Liam and the rest of the young people! All the hard work pays off…and this will set them up for outstanding futures, hard work really does get you “places”! You must be so very proud…by the way I watched the DVD that I recently purchased and I am getting the stuff together to have some dyeing fun…thank you for making it so understandable!

  2. Yay! Congrats on getting a lot done in June and good luck in July! Can’t wait to see more of your renovation photos 🙂 Also, It must be so exciting for your son to be having those wonderful experiences overseas! 🙂
