Brrr…I’m freezing!  I love the fall weather much better than the heat, though.  I’m heading to Tullahoma tomorrow.  Lo and behold–Siegel Freshmen will be there, too.  Maybe I’ll see someone I know when I go out to eat with my mom, brother, and his family.  It’s a small world!  Chip came home by 8:30 this […]

So, I have updated the band web page this morning with what?  The Trumpet Weekend Photo Show, of course!  There is other info to put on, too, but I really like to get section news on there.  Lots of parents and extended family would never see what their kids are doing if it didn’t get […]

  A couple of pictures that I needed to include, which I forgot in the grouping.  Samantha and Jenna would be so sad!  The Variety Show at the High School is Thursday night.  The cost is $6.00, and I do hope many of the parents will try to go.  I’m going to videotape it, so […]

Hooray for my friend Emily Lupoli, who now has no braces on her teeth!! Have I mentioned lately how proud I am of the kids in the band?  They are the most incredible people, young or old.  Actually, I feel the same way about my youth group.  I am amazed at the depth in these […]

Birmingham was oh so much fun.  Of course, it’s always more fun to win, isn’t it?  Not necessarily.  There is such thing as a hollow victory, I believe.  If we had competed against five bands that were altogether worse than we were, it wouldn’t have been much of a win, would it?  No, our score […]
