This morning we joined the worship team at church for the first time. Tim says he didn't have a clue what was going on. He spent the practice time trying to figure out the songs (no music) and hearing them for the first time. I felt more or less comfortable on the violin. I really enjoy the rhythms and styles of music here. On Friday, I was also invited to play in a wedding Feb. 9. To be honest, I just don't like playing in weddings, but it's always hard to say no to your friends. This isn't my friend per se, but I thought I shouldn't pass up the opportunity for the cultural experience.
We saw Fred Claus (El Hermano de Santa) last night with the family. It was a little strange watching a Christmas movie (at the theater) in the middle of January, and the dubbed version of Vince Vaughan didn't quite cut it for me. Still, it's always fun to go to the movies, and we love doing anything with the O'Briens when we get a chance. Particularly because we generally fit at least 7 people into Julio's VW bug to get there.
