Crystal picked me up from work tonight and took me home with her…

once we got there we had a lovely dinner of tortellini with mushrooms and shrimp and Alfredo sauce… very nice, although just a bit spicy for my taste, lol…

while our musician was getting ready, I helped with homework and watched video games…

then we were off… dropped the musician at school and ran over to Starbuck’s to get some coffee and hot chocolate… another lovely treat because I never even think of getting something from there… I particularly like their white hot chocolate… it has lots of whipping cream in it…

found a great parking spot and joined a large gym full of family and friends to see and hear the concert… bands from grade 7, 8, and 9 played with a few songs from a choir and a final piece from the grade 9 jazz band… the first song that the grade 8s (our boy) played was spectacular and the final piece by the jazz band was very nice as well…

for whatever reason, this year the band members were not on risers or a stage and so the only picture of our guy was a tiny bit of hair sticking up from the crowd of young people… the director told us that the 85 member grade 9 band practices in three separate groups and they had only played together as a whole band since yesterday… quite a feat…

back to their house where I was turned over to another driver for the ride home…

before we left I got a couple of great shots of the musician, who was happy to comply…

on the ride home I was reflecting on all the band concerts that George and I attended over the years while the girls were in school…

I was very pleased that Jeff brought me home, because once here, he shovelled out the sidewalk at the street where the plows had piled up big chunks of snow…

now it is all clear, and I am heading to bed… been a busy day…
