Middle School Concert

Tuesday night was the Middle School Concert in George County. For the first time in quite a few years, it was more than just the band. The Seminole Singers are back!

The 7th grade band played a few songs, then during the change from 7th grade to 8th grade band, the percussion ensemble played Beat Street, the parade cadence. M, who carried marching bells in the parade, had to play cymbals. She hates playing cymbals. But she did it anyway. Here's a picture of the 8th grade band playing "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

Bells is what she really likes to play. And here she is doing her thing. (standing alone in the back)

She has a partner that usually plays the xylophone (wooden bells) next to her, but Audrey was playing wooden blocks during the Grinch song and was in a different location. (sorry for the poor resolution but I was pretty high up and the camera doesn't perform really well on the zoom setting.)

We ended the evening at Burger King: no cheesy tots were consumed. We are a french fry family.

Tomorrow (Thursday), L's 6th grade band is going to perform in the cafeteria while the kindergartners eat lunch. I have to find out what time that is so I can inform Sr. Mrs. H, who will be headed up this way for other stuff. We're also having our Christmas with her and the eldest's boyfriend Thursday evening. I think we're ordering pizza. I hope everything that is supposed to get done tomorrow gets done. It's going to be one of those days. Then Friday we spend the day packing and getting ready to leave at '0 dark thirty' Saturday morning.
