Almost There

Concerts, all 8 of them...done.
Choir banquet...done.
Graduation rehearsal...done.
Band banquet...done.

It's hard to believe it's almost over.  One last big event is left...graduation!

Last night was the big banquet. we like totally (how's that for some 80's, totally dude!) got it right this year.

Well, almost.


The band banquet is known to be very, very, very, very, very, very, very long.  Like totally waaaaay long.  And rather expensive, too.  Freshman year, we were really good parents and went.

And vowed not to go back again until we had to, which was senior year for the senior awards and the senior roast.

But, we kinda cheated.  We met our friends D and J for dinner and margaritas at a nearby restaurant rather than sitting throughout the painful 1st half of the banquet.  Double the fun for half the money.

Our kids had strict instructions to text us when the awards started.  We were ready and waiting and when the phones started buzzing, we headed on over.  The almost right part?  Both our kids got awards while we were in the car, so we ended up missing them.  Ah well, we were there in time for the roast, which was kinda sorta funny but made us thankful we had not paid to be there.


Matthew was awarded best jazz musician.  Pretty cool, beans!
