Today I am thankful for band. Not the practicing at home so much 🙂 James has been a percussionist since 5th grade. He seems to have a lot of fun playing in the band and he is lucky to have some of his best friends in it too. Today was his first band concert as a high schooler. I expected the same old boring concert, but that was certainly not the case. The new band director brings a ton of fun and energy to her concerts. Unfortunately, James still has one more year of the typical concert band before he can be part of the marching band, but he still gets to participate in pep band and go to all of the sporting events and play. Next week they are going to play at the state volleyball tourney! Here’s James with his friend, Danika.
