I love that my kids learn to play instruments in the band, and Curly and Scout finished up the year with an awesome concert tonight. My favorite was Pink Panther by the reeds ensemble which happened to include both of my kids because Curly is playing the clarinet and Scout is playing the alto sax.
Scout managed her music medal easily since she is terrific at holding her breath long enough to win a breathing contest. Which basically means they all play a sustained note and the one holding it the longest wins.
The concert was over in about 45 minutes and then we raced off for the end of ballgames. My sweetie took Scout one way and I took Curly the other. Scout was able to play as we expected, but Curly's game was nearly over and they lost in a heart-breaking tag at home plate (which is quite controversial because the catcher actually dropped the ball...)
Still we were able to present the treats and the boys saw that Curly was missing from his game because he had a very good reason which is why I offered to bring the treats out anyway.
Tomorrow is another busy day and the last day of finals for the Dog Walker. I'm looking forward to getting just a little more sleep.
