Christmas Concerts

Sarah had her first concert just before Christmas. She was so excited. She started band this year playing the french horn but it was too heavy for her to hold up. They decided to switch her to a clarinet because it's not as heavy but she is too small for the clarinet, her arms aren't long enough to reach all the levers, button and holes and she doesn't have enough lung power to play some of the notes. They suggested she switch to percussion. She decided band is too stressful and she would rather switch to art.

Brendan was a little less excited but he was exhausted. He had three concerts that week and another the next week. He played in the 5th and 6th grade beginner band concert, he was invited to play with the middle school band and was asked to play in a district wide concert, and then his school had a winter celebration that he had to perform at. He was so exhausted from all the extra practices and concerts that when he came home from school the day after the last concert he went straight to bed and slept until it was time to wake up the next day.

I think Brendan was the shortest kid at the district concert and they put him in the back so we couldn't see him.

I can't believe your kids are that big. They grow up so fast! So is Brenden really good?
