Music, Music, & More Music

The last couple days here have been filled with music.

Tuesday night was my Mother/Daughter Dinner at church. My Mum isn't usually able to attend because she lives about 2 hours away and my church always seems to have it on a weekday. But I my mother-in-law, g'ma, Aunt Tracey, and Aunt Mose are almost always able to attend.

This year the theme was "Make a Joyful Noise". We had the privilege to have Gina Toth bless us with her voice. She has an amazing voice and has written many of her own songs. One of the songs that really hit home that evening was "How Will I Know" written by her. If you get a chance pop over there and listen to it.

Yesterday in the early afternoon was Josh's Choral Concert. They all sing different songs with the students in their grade. The theme this year was "Unsung Hero's". Every song was about someone in the school, like the Principal, Teachers, Nurse, Custodian, Cafeteria Staff, Bus Drivers, etc. The kids did a great job and some of the songs and little skits that went along with them were a hoot.

Josh is also in the Elementary Show Choir. They performed 3 songs and had a great time doing it. Some of the kids (including mine) really get into the words and actions.

Then last evening was the Band Concert. Josh plays Saxophone and was in the Elementary band. TJ plays Trumpet and was in the High School Concert Band, Jazz Band and Wind Ensemble.

All the kids did a wonderful job. It was great listening to the little ones first and then up through the ranks to the High School kids. You really could hear how they had progressed through the years.

I almost forgot to mention that Josh was invited to particpate in a Summer Theatre Camp at the local College.

Wow.... ya'll are just a bunch of singing fools! hehe ;o)

I love music too though. I want to know how many of those things made you get all teary-eyed? Or... is that something that just happens to ME?

I can't carry a tune in a bucket!

Don't you just love watching your kids sing/play instruments/act? It just about makes a mama bubble over with pride. :)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the comment.

I played trumpet in school. Kinda wish I learned an instrument that I could play today. Its not like I can pick up my old horn and quietly play.
