Time for it to END...

This was started on our overseas assigment as a way to keep family and friends updated on our lives. Now that we are back home and it is much easier to keep in touch .....the blog is going silent. It seems like I never post anymore and while it has been fun ~ it is time to put this into retirement.

Going To State

Saturday was very busy in our house but a GREAT very busy. We started the day at the cross country semi state meet where Andrew and the boys team WON the meet and will advance to the STATE meet next weekend. Andrew set a new PR with a time of :15.46 for the 5K.

We then went to the semi state band competition where Christopher was performing. The band ALSO advanced to the state meet next weekend. SO we will be quite busy again next week but we are excited to see what great things happen next.

District Band Competition

Today was the district competition for band! It was a COLD and WINDY afternoon but there was a lot of great music. Here is a video of part of the band's performance. The show is called the 'Heist' and is based on the movie the Thomas Crown Affair. The music was created just for the band and has been great to see it evolve from band camp this summer. The band earned a Gold rating and will advance to the regional competition in a couple of weeks. They also won best music, best visual and best general effect.** Chris plays the bass drum and he is the last on the far right!
