AND THE BAND PLAYED ON

By
Mortgage and Lending with WR Starkey Mortgage

TIS THE SEASON for the grandchildren to be in school plays and band concerts. Tonight we drove through a little snow and ice to hear the elementary school's band and orchestra. Our grandson is in 4th grade and plays a violin in the orchestra. He just took this up this semester, and is progressing along the path to be an accomplished musician.

The groups were actually quite good for their ages. It seems that some teachers really have the ability to challenge the children to practice and learn to play together.

Right before the Thanksgiving Holiday, we were able to attend the morning play of our 3rd grade granddaughter . Her class portrayed the Pilgrim's first Thanksgiving feast. Everyone had a part to recite, and the costumes were quite creative. It was interesting to think back about my first little plays in grade school. I remember memorizing the lines and suffering from stage fright over those few words. Well, things haven't changed much since then. Some of the children were right up front and boomed out their lines. Others were struggling with the words and still others looked helplessly at the teacher who jumped in with a few whispered lines to jog their memories.

Overall it was a an entertaining morning, and we had pie, cookies, and juice to wrap up the event.

It is a great feeling to have grand-kids that we love perform no matter what they do.

I couldn't agree more, Tim. If I had known how much fun they would be I would have had them first.

Guy,

The kids school musicals have always been a favorite part of the season for me...whether they were my kids or not, it puts your feet back on the ground and your head into the spirit of the season!

It really does for me too. I find that it is more fun as grandpa than it might have been when the children were growing up. Must be that passing of time and appreciation of different priorities.

I used to play the violin too!  Congrats to your grandchildren who are learning the gift of music and to all the joy it brings their family and friends (and even the world.)

Thank you for the comments, Renee. We enjoy listening to all these children. I think the music adds a lot to their education and it is xomething they can take with them.
