For the second year in a row, Andrew was nominated for the All State Honors Band. It's such a privilege - such an inspiring experience for kids to play with other high musical achievers. It means a weekend in Tampa for us, at a hotel, amid the annual conference of our state's music educators. There are instruments to try and clinics for educators and concerts. So many great concerts.
Here's a look at how our weekend went:
Grandma and Grampy came to hear the music.
Emma really enjoyed checking out the exhibits and all the cool instruments at the convention.
Of course, Andrew had a concert and that was the whole point of the weekend. He played so well and we are so proud of him.
