Band!!!

This has been a very nostalgic week for me. Monday night (our anniversary) we went with some friends to a Drum Corp show. Drum Corps are amazing marching bands with just horns and percussion. Check out my friend's blog post here to see pics and video. (I'm letting her do the work for me!) Now the reason this was nostalgic for me is I was in marching band in high school. And I loved every minute of it. I would be in a marching band again if they had one for old band nerds like me!

Then last night I took Zachary to the first meeting with his new high school band director. Yes, my first born is following in my foot steps-I'm so proud! He starts marching band camp next week. We both love the director. He's young (first job out of college for him) and full of energy and excitement - and he is a saxophone player (private lessons with the director - yahoo!). Zachary is going to a new high school and this is the first year they will have band, so it will be interesting to see how it all goes. I'll plan on being as involved as they will let me! Go Hawks!

BAND GEEKS UNITE!!!

Evan is a band geek too but there is a huge after school commitment so he was only in as a freshman! He misses it though! Loved band too and I know Zachary will love it! Go band geeks! (I think there is a group on facebook for band geeks)

How fun! Isn't it neat to see our kids love what we love?
