I did, at one point, almost start crying, because Mark and I weren't sitting there with Momma and Tracy, and Mic and Daddy - but... then I got a hold of myself. It sure is hard, though. :(
Anyway ...apparently this is just how they do it out here - have allllll the kids perform on the same day - they will be doing it again in the spring! Very cool!
There were 4th graders - 12th graders all there performing and the event started with the high school jazz band - and Oh. My. Gosh. - they were GOOD! I told Patrick that that is what he just has to do - that was the coolest thing ever - to hear that level of playing coming out of high school kids just blew me away! I was sitting there with my friend, and she played in high school - the sax - and she said these kids were way better than they ever were! It really was amazing!
(Shawn plays the trombone now, and has always wanted to play the violin, so I guess that rules out jazz band for him, lest anyone think I'm leaving him out.) ;)
And wouldn't you just freaking know it?! My darn camera was dead - I didn't get to take one bloody picture - and this was Shawn's first ever performance! Dagnabbit!
But I did get Sammie's camera all hooked up and running with this computer - so we will soon have a private concert...get a Youtube acct - and post that sucker right here on this little 'ol blog for all to see and hear and enjoy! Yea!!!
And yea for
