Tonight was the last band concert for the year. The six grade band sounded good, but the 7th and 8th grade band sounded great. The 6th grade played 1812 overture. Kristen was really enjoying the music when the canyons (bass drum, we are inside) went off. She nearly hit the ceiling. After teh 6th grade band, then both Jazz Bands played and finally the 7th and 8th grade band played. They played some really nice music and always sound so good. I am sure we didn't sound that good in junior high. I don't think our director pushed us the way Mrs. Fee pushes the band. When she started to talk about wishing the 8th graders luck at the high school, I must admit I got just a little teary eyed. It seems like we have always celebrated and looked forward to the firsts in our children's lives and all to soon, the lasts are starting to come. Yes I still have 4 more years, but I am sure they are going to fly by.
