The cold is driving us back indoors to our streamed concert series season. Last evening, we enjoyed watching the Missoula Symphony perform outdoors on a local ranch. Our daughter, formerly a flutist with the symphony, is now one of their directors. And, her husband is the symphony’s first trumpet.
Our two children and their families from Missoula, Montana and Afton, Minnesota, along with their five net dogs, converged for a rare gathering in Lakeside, Montana. We enjoyed a week of fun and chaos, with our house being tipped upside down.
Now we are empty-nesters again, enjoying the clean, orderly house but missing the action.
