Our Family Home Evening tonight was watching the middle school band and orchestra concert. They went all crazy and had it at the high school auditorium. There were two concerts- the 6th grade one, and then the 7th and 8th grades together. Emma was asked to play in the 6th grade concert too, which we didn't go watch. We are on the sugar crash from Easter weekend, and asking the kids to sit through two concerts was more than we could all handle. But I am sure Emma did a great job. I think it's a compliment to Emma to be asked to learn (remember? I'll have to ask if they are the same songs she played last year.) more than she was required to. She was one of two band kids asked to help the 6th graders. She's a really bright and talented girl.
After the concert, we went to Burger Ranch for ice cream with the Condies and Gardners. I think we should make that a tradition.
