A couple days prior I was doing one of my least favorite activities, folding socks, standing in our bedroom with Anika laying on the bed kicking away, E was napping and in the distance I could hear the “Notre Dame Victory March” playing. I opened the window and let the band practice sounds come clearly through and called my mom. I put the phone on speaker so she could hear it too. Folding socks was a lot more entertaining with the band practice in the background. There is another instrument being played in our home other than Hunter on his trumpet and piano. Nathan has been playing his trombone again. For those of you who do not know, Nathan played his trombone for years and years and became an accomplished musician with it. He is playing this Sunday in church and again in a few weeks for a Concordia College concert band reunion event. Yes he is a band boy and I used to make fun of band boys. But that ended when I met the best band boy in the world and married him!
The homecoming parade included many floats created by the classes at the school. Each junior high and high school class has their own float plus numerous businesses and churches have floats. Small town parades always include horses and tractors too!
