band kids

Last night was the last band concert of the year, and the last of Emma's career. Next year she is going to choir route, and it's really hard to do both. That, and she doesn't want to be in marching band. Evan is going to continue on in seventh grade, and is considering making a switch to tuba (!)
It was 90+ degrees yesterday, so I was very glad to find they hadthe AC cranking in the cafeteria. My head had been pounding all day, and I don't think I could have sat there for both concerts if it had been hot. Both bands were very good-better than I expected. The songs were fun and you could tell the kids liked them.
I'm sad to see Emma's band days come to an end. She has a knack for music and it was the very first thing she did all by herself without any influence from us. Next year at this time I'll be posting about her solos in choir!
Great job, guys!

Awwww . . . she's quitting band? Marching band rocks, though. I mean, you do band camp in summer, and then when the doors of the high school open for business, you have a hundred friends, ready made! It is hard to do both, so I understand, but still!

Oh man! I'm with Jan. Marching band was one of my favorite parts of high school. Choir will be fun too though! Does Evan have a mohawk? Awesome! :)

Do I spy a mohawk on your boy?
