So, the Christmas Parade was yesterday. It was a lovely day, all in all, though the big pile of horse poop that I narrowly escaped practically marred the beauty of the day. I got to see all of those amazing band kiddos and some pretty awesome band parents, who I love running into whenever the opportunity presents itself.
For the full photo show, go to the band web page. www.siegelband.org You’ll see a link there!
It may come as a shock to you, but I have friends in other bands, too!
So, did everyone have fun?
Chip and Chelsey are watching a movie, after they finished a nice, cool walk around the neighborhood, which was followed by a toasty cup of hot chocolate full of marshmallows. Yes, a little romance, I suppose. Bernie offered to go for a walk with them, but I told him we should just keep the home fires burning. Don’t you agree?
Parker…I hardly have seen him today. He went home with Matthew, they dropped his backpack here a little bit ago, and then they headed to the ball game. I miss his face when I don’t see it for several hours! This social life thing is too much sometimes for a mom to bear.
Good Night Moon.
