Football and Band

We took Chloe and Aaron to their first football game Tuesday night. Their cousin, Nic, was playing for Haltom Middle School's 8th grade team. The kids sure enjoyed exploring the large stadium! And, Chloe loved chearing for Nic :-)

After the game, 3 junior high bands played (including Haltom Middle which has both of their cousins Nic and Nate (brothers) playing. Nic plays Euphonium and Nate trombone).
The kids loved hearing the music. Then the high school band showed us part of their marching show. The kids especially liked that! They made lots of comments about the "flags."
At the beginning of the evening, Chloe said she wanted to play the flute in band one day. However, after seeing the percussion section, she decided she wants to play the drums. I told her that her Uncle's Lance and Alan (my bros. who played drums in high school band--Lance still plays and has been a band director) will be very proud :-)
Fun stuff!


  1. Hey Natalie,

    I just saw you have only 39 days to go in your pregnancy! How are you feeling? I know that the last part is WAY too long, even though to the rest of us 39 days isn't a big deal. To a pregnant mama, it feels like decades! Do you have your surgery scheduled already?

    Hope all is well!


  2. Chloe,

    Don't give up on your dream. Play drums. Play them loud. Play them at home!!!

    P.S. Mommy and Daddy - hand drums are much quieter...
