Well, Thursday turned out to be a beautiful day. The Symphonic Band performed at UGA(Go Dawgs!) for Festival. We didn't do too badly. We got 2 Excellents, 1 Good in sight reading. We really wanted Superior, but didn't get it. Well, next year.
This momma hen here has a problem, Jacob has always played the clarinet, 3 years of private lessons, now, this year his band director had a zillion holes to fill since we had 25 seniors graduate last year. So Harkness asked Jacob to try the French horn in symphonic and the mellophone in marching band. So Jacob has pretty much had to learn 2 new instruments. Which of course he has, but not like he can play the clarinet. We (I) are hoping to get a scholarship for college, and I was hoping it would be clarinet.
So, the question is, should we push for clarinet back or will we be better off trying for French horn. I know you have to be good to get the scholarships and I want what's best for Jacob, not what's best for a band director just trying to fill holes. So if anyone out there has advice, I'm willing to listen. I'm willing to provide for private lessons in French horn if that's the best for Jacob (even though my husband is furious that we would have wasted 3 years worth of private lessons in clarinet.) Ugg! Why is life so confusing sometimes?
As to stitching, I do have a start on VoHRH, as soon as camera recharges, I'll take pictures! I also have a start on the Hope piece for my friend who has breast cancer.(BTW, she is home from the hospital recovering from double mascetomy-she starts 4 rounds of chemo soon.)
Would you believe a tornado passed over us today! The siren went off and everything. Let me just tell you, trying to round up my animals was no fun. My kitties were frightened, I ended up leaving them hiding under the bed, dog did coming willingly with us to the laundry room to hide. Atlanta was hit pretty hard, in Flowery Branch were my hubby was working, the factory was lightly touched, hail the size of golf balls, sure hope John's truck isn't too beat up.
Well, that's all for now. I know I talked your ear off!
ps: Jacob sure does look handsome in his tux.
