5th Grade Band

My talented daughter decided to pick the bass clarinet as her first foray into the world of music. This weekend was the first time she brought her instrument home to practice. Oi Vey. That thing is huge! Band is a non-issue with my husband. Hannah MUST participate. Here I was thinking that study hall, the other choice during that period, would be fab since Hannah would come home with her homework done and have some down time. That and the cost!

Hannah perservered all weekend and even learning her fingering for a scale. The sounds aren't that bad, the steriotypical injured duck sounds, they are easily ignored.

First Day of School

My sweet kids pictured on their first day of school last Monday. Sam, a.k.a. Bubba, looks a little "crazy tucked in" because we thought it was a chapel day. It wasn't. We didn't get the memo.
