Notes From Grain Bin B

Because it has the best acoustics on the farm, this grain bin (where we currently store old furniture) has been re-purposed...


Here are:
Jon, friend, Justin, Kevin, Michelle, and Dominic
singing Alma Redemptoris:
(They say to be clear that this was sung without their music)

And here are the boys in the same vaulted chamber

singing Irish folk song, Dúlamán...

Check out the English Translation of this Celtic song!
I guarantee the boys don't know how this translates.
But, I think it's pretty funny that the gist is: Look out, girls!
The opening lines are:

Oh gentle daughter, here come the wooing men
Oh gentle mother, put the wheels in motion for me.


(l-r: Dominic, Justin, Michelle, Kevin, Jon)

Kevvy is driving the boys back to Omaha this evening and returning Tuesday. We'll get Jon and Dominic back after Jon's graduation in a month!

So talented!! I sing in a choir, and for anyone who may not know, a capella singing like that is HARD. Awesome :)
