This weekend we had the privilege of going to an All District concert to watch my SS perform. He auditioned in December and made 1st Chair Symphonic Band, which is as good as you can get. (Our school had 5 students that performed but SS was the only one that made 1st Chair! They will all be featured in tomorrow's paper. BTW, he's the one at the end and his bff is in the middle.)
This is the fourth year in a row that's he has made All District, starting at 4th Chair Concert Band and then moving his way up a little each year. Of course we were very proud of him and excited for him because now he will get the opportunity to audition for All State.
SS plays the baritone for concert/symphonic band, the trombone for jazz band and the sousaphone in marching band. Even though I insist on singing at the top of my lungs in the car, he didn't get his musical gifts from me. Shocking I know.
Actually I can't figure out which family member he may have gotten this from but I'm glad he's got it because he's made it his own thing.
In other good news, I checked my email this morning only to find out that I had won TWO different contests! Un-be-lieve-able.
First one I got was from the infamous Bakerella saying that I won a Bake L♥ve tee and a year subscription to Taste of Home. If you haven't visited her site you must, you must, you must. Her goodies are to die for...but so cute you don't know if it's edible.
Plus now she's got my crazy profile picture up as the winner so that's reason enough to visit.
Then I got one from Tricia @ Once A Month Mom telling me I won a certificate for a free mini-dessert at Carrabba's. Mmmmmmmm I heart Carrabba's. And desserts. And Once A Month Mom for giving me free dessert.
And my sweetie left this comment about yesterday's post:
