Lindsey's final high school concert

Monday night was the final concert for Lindsey's high school singing days and it was so sad for me! It was a wonderful concert and the Show! Choir was FANTASTIC. Here's Lindsey with friends Nidal and Melody. Here's the Honor's Women's Choir performing (she's in both). You can see Lindsey on the front row, bottom right, second from the end.
Show choir earned the highest rankings, all ones, in a recent competition. They sounded amazing during this farewell concert! I loved every minute of it and was so proud of each of these fine students for all their hard work over the years, and was especially tender-hearted and on the verge of weepy, toward my little Lindsey girl. I can't believe she will be a high school graduate in a little more than a week.
They beautifully sang three songs A Capella and it was a very moving performance!
Lindsey turned in her red and black choir dresses at the school today. They will sing the National Anthem at graduation and the school song, I believe. Other than that, she's done! And I'm sad and happy. It is indeed bittersweet.
To wrap all this positive, wonderful singing energy up with an exciting ending, Lindsey was one of seven seniors who received a $500 scholarship from the choir booster club! Congratulations to Lindsey on pouring her heart and soul into choir the past eight years and adding joy to those who have been within the sound of her beautiful voice. She has been asked to sing a duet at the stake seminary graduation with a young man from her choir. They had their first practice on Sunday and it sounded great. She plans to audition for the women's choir at BYU-Idaho in the fall.


My goodness, I can't believe she is graduating already! And how exciting...BYU-Idaho...I went there my freshman year and had so much fun. I hope she has a wonderful experience there!

The farewell concert is so bittersweet! I know this because we experienced that last week too. Best of luck Lindsey dear, and congrats on your scholarship!

You really do have so many exciting things happening all the time. What a great ending to all that choir practice she has put in over the years.

I can't believe that she will be graduating already, she is such a great girl I bet that she will have a good time in Idaho...well maybe not if she is there during the long freezing winters.
Graduating already? Where has the time gone? What a fun high school career she has had. You raised one great girl, Kelly.
I remember having high school concerts there! Good times!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
