Owning the Groove, indeed

Thanks to my good friend Ron Rienstra from over at RONdezvous there is now video proof of our awesome New Years Eve drum circle. Ron and Deb and their kids came over on New Years Eve and celebrate the new year together in a magical land called "Trevonia," which is located somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. Why there, you ask? Because midnight in Trevonia is about three of four hours earlier than it is where we live and that allows us to bring in the new year at a time more appropriate for the younger Rienstra children. So this has been our second or third visit to Trevonia and each time it gets better and better.

This year, thanks to Ron's tireless research, we discovered that Trevoians celebrate the New Year with a Drum Circle. By some wild coincidence, Ron and I both got djembes this year (Ron got his for Christmas) and Meredith's friend Calvin had one and we insisted that he bring it. We also had some smaller hand percussion for so others (not cool enough to have their own drum) could participate so we were all set to own the groove on New Years eve. Here is a short clip showing just a little bit of the fun we had. By all means, check out Ron's description of our festivities too! By the way, our families rock at the Bible version of Apples to Apples.
