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 on the web page, did you know that? Want to see the photo show? It’s short…but good. I really like the way I messed with the photo of Beth attacking Chip with the rake–it looks like it would be in a cave wall thousands of years from now—could be! http://www.siegelband.org/images/Trumpet%20Weekend Go watch it!
Last night, the youth group girls were supposed to meet me at Starbucks at 6:00, right? Ummm…well, I guess riding with me kind of is the same as meeting me–ya’ll met me in my car, right? 🙂 It was so much fun, and so funny!! Melissa and Taylor had to use stir sticks to drink/eat their drinks because they aren’t allowed to use straws because of some DBS pledge thing. Of course, in came DBS older girls, so it was a good thing they were following the rules, hmmm. 🙂 Then, Kallie, whom I shall forever call the girl with the eagle eye (because she spotted the guy) and the shaky hand (because she was cracking up too much to take a good picture) made me laugh very, very hard. The pictures tell the story…
So, here are all the girls who could come…with stir sticks for lowly pledges… Then, Taylor brought Pop Rocks–
You know, the stuff that pops when it mixes with the spit in your mouth? Loved it when I was a kid, but I don’t
really want to mess up my coffee, so I just took the pictures. Taylor has the best facial expressions!
Yay! (not a real word, I don’t think)–Stephy was home and joined us!!!! What fun. Annie and Morgan
always looking cheery. So much fun to be with, too. Annie also comes over for movie nights—double the
fun with that girl!
The DBS shirt with the design by none other than our wonderful
Miss Taylor Simpson herself–model for the evening, Miss Melissa Mitchell. OK, now the finale….I love Sharpie Markers, but…
What does ANYONE need with 20 markers in their shirt pocket? He is probably a wonderful man with a wonderful story,
but he watched us the entire evening (OK, so we were a bit nutty)–and he had ALL those SHARPIES in shirt pocket!!! Kallie
takes the prize for spotting it, and Morgan Neal takes the prize for getting the beautiful picture without too much laughing.
It was a wonderful weekend. Trumpets, the rest of the band, Chelsey, my sweet Parker and Bernie, the best youth group girls anyone could hope to have, AND I get to see my mother this week. Yep, life’s good. Even though not many of you had much to say about the beautiful pictures and words, Be Thou My Vision, it was a spiritual experience for me, and it was my time with God–glad you could share quietly in it.
