C plays the trumpet. He is very good at it. He was able to make honor band as a seventh grader. We are so very proud of him.
He even had a solo in the concert last night. He was nervous that he would mess up, but he didn't. It was great!
The only hard thing about the concert was that honor band was last, after the other two bands and their awards. By the time honor band and awards was done, it was approximately 8:30 at night. Our babies were tired! They had had it! And, we still had to eat dinner. We had driven the other kids to their dad and had to go straight to the concert. Being both tired and hungry is never a good combination for anyone, but especially a toddler and a baby.
While C did not win any of the awards, he was nominated for one. Since band is quite large, it is an honor just to be nominated. I am proud of him.
Their band is very good, and it is such a joy to listen to them. Another bad thing about the concert, however, is that the trumpets sit a little ways back and it is almost impossible to see him.
Still so blessed! I sat there at the concert feeling so very blessed that I can't go and support my children in their many activities.
