Now that Liam is in 9th grade, he’s auditioning for the High School honor bands/orchestras on trombone. Happily, he made it into all 3 (All County, All Southern and All State). The first of these concerts was last Sunday (after 3 days of rehearsals, oh so luckily hosted by the University of Redlands).
I wasn’t able to get very good pictures, but it was an enjoyable concert! These honor groups are a great way to keep the kids connecting with other like minded folk, and the bigger the audition pool the better the group can be. Groups like these were major motivators for me when I was growing up, and now, they are acting similarly for Liam.
And Logan is doing a great job of holding his brother’s tuxedo jacket! Fun times!
