Time Keeps on Slipppin, Slippin, Slippin

So this morning, I woke up in Birmingham, AL. Yesterday I woke up in Indiana. You get used to, magically, waking up in different states every morning. We spent a good bit of the day at the galleria in Birmingham, Mom loves a good mall when she can get one. We usually go to grab a bite to eat before setting up, but we just went straight to the church today. 

Whenever we arrive, we will go inside and check out the particular building, see what type of sound we will be dealing with. We start setting up, Shawn and I are in charge of speakers, my guitar rig, product, Dad's mixer and keyboard. Once we have set up, about 30 min. after we have gotten there, we do a sound check. By this time, it's about time to shower, you may have a few minutes, on a lucky day, to grab a sandwich and watch an episode of The Office. 

The shows over the past couple of days have gone really well. We have started staging a new song for Morgan. She is doing very well on it, we, as a band, are still working out a couple of kinks, mainly just deciding on a particular intro. Morgan is doing it really well though, she is really growing as a singer. 

We have a concert tomorrow, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, we will be home Wednesday, then we leave Wednesday night and will be gone until the 15th. So we are in the middle of a busy cycle, to say the least. But I'm pretty excited because after we get back from this little run, my favorite television seasons start. I'm particularly excited for Heroes, The Office, and Dexter, but I'm going to have to wait until January for Lost.  As you can tell, I'm a nerd when it comes to my TV, unfortunately, I still don't have satellite. Kyle and I moved into a home that we renovated back in March. The house was one of Pop Lewis' first homes, he used to say that it was an old house when he moved into it in 1905, so needless to say it was a bit of a task to restore. I'll post pictures soon.

Well, I can't think of much more to catch you up on. I did have an idea for a new weekly blog, I'll introduce you to different members of our group that some of you may not know yet, but they are without a doubt just as important, if not more, to our ministry. I'll basically just tell you all about them, their favorite things about being on the road, being at home, and a few other tidbits about themselves.

Again, thank you all for your comments. 

Hope to see you at one of our shows soon.
