Band Concert and Season Finale

The Girl Creative

The Girl Creative is hosting this.  Hop over to her blog if you want to see what it is all about. 

Last night, the kids participated in a band concert.  It was for the Junior High and High School and Awards were given out too.  Son received a participation award for Pep Band.  Daughter received a Pep Band Award, second year Marching Band Award (her varsity letter), and a first year concert band award. 

The seniors also passed down awards for Marching band.  Daughter got a shoe.  It's kinda funny, but the tradition is to add to it every year you have it and pass it down your last year.  This is just a black, jazz shoe. 

So what can she do with this?  She wants to write the year she got it, and put some felt in it.  Maybe she can put new shoe laces in it.  But I know that she will make it fabulous! 

Here are a couple of pictures from last night.

The tall one in the center is Son.  Those are 7th graders.  He is pretty tall.  He is now telling us he does not want to march.  He wants to play in the drum pit.  This has upset Foxy, and I am not sure what to make of it.  I don't know if he is just being lazy or scared or what, but I am going to find the real reason.

Next to the Director (at the podium) is BFF (on the left of her).  Then Daughter is two from him.  They kids look forward to this all year, but it is bitter sweet because this is the seniors last performance as high school students. 

Did anyone watch Grey's Anatomy last night?  I had DVR'd it, but decided to start it at 10:21 pm last night.  OMG!  My body shook through the whole first hour of the show.  I was so hyped and scared.  I absolutely loved every second of it.  It was one of the best season finales ever.

I am hoping the 24 will be just the same, though it is the show ending.  

Have a great weekend.  I have nothing major on my weekend, so I hope to rest and clean (Yeah, right.).


  1. I feel like I'm the only person in America who doesn't watch 24 or Grey's!

    I hope the resting/cleaning happens. I always intend to do both...but only ever manage to complete the resting with any regularity!

    Congrats to your kids on the band concert. I loved those things when I was young--once I got over the nerves.

  2. I honestly think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't watch Grey's or 24!

    Congrats to your kids on the band concert. I loved those things when I was younger, once I moved past the nervous nausea.
