Here is an update on my daughter at ETSU. She went with friends from school down to IBMA in Nashville. She gets to do all the fun things I would have wanted to do.

Most of the time I jam at night with my oldest daughter. But now she is off. She has started studies at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City. She is studying at their Bluegrass program, so we are very excited about that. It is a great chance for her. I uploaded som pictures of guitarpickers that she has met sofar after she arrived. It is a big step to travel so far away when you are 18, but she has been doing great sofar.
