Let's Go Band!

Tonight my family attended YougerSon's
"Winter Concert" at his elementary school. Both Younger and ElderSons are trumpeters in their respective school bands and while I always rather thought that ElderSon was the more musical of the two boys (YoungerSon being the more artistic), seems this low-key sort of kid had kept his musiciality under wraps!

He actually played a solo at this evening's performance and we were both delighted that he played his little bit marvelously. Some adults who weren't even his parents stopped him after the concert and commended him on the fine job he did.

While I will likely never again hear the beginning of "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (you know the part I mean: "You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen...") without thinking of this concert, DearHusband and I mused about just how many more times we'd sit in a gym and listen to yet another rousing rendition of "Let's Go Band!" It was their finale this evening.

Of course it was.

It always is.
