Today is August 28th.
The past 3 weeks my oldest has been in band camp every day for 6 hours. Friday night we had a preview of what their competition marching program will be. It was wonderful. The next day we went up to Mt. Charleston for a family picnic. My hubby's 2 sisters, their husbands and his mother were all there. What a beautiful end to the summer. We ate junk food, took a hike and played Aggravation. So much fun. The boys started school this past Monday and it has been a whirlwind week. We are all looking forward to the 4 day weekend.
Today I am thankful for the opportunity that music provides for our children and for the way that music increases learning. I am also thankful for the wonderful cool (to us) summer we've had. Only a couple of 115 degree days and mostly in the low 100's.
