Music to our ears

The other night, Tuesday, Bojan had a concert for band.  He plays the trumpet.

Double trouble.  I made them try on their suits.  Both small.  So, traded.  Bojan was able to wear Max's jacket.  Though I did not know it had a major hole in the arm.  URGHH!!!  Need to find them some suits soon.  More Bojan than Max though b/c of the concerts.  So, if you see some on sale, do let me know folks. 

Waiting for the show to start is well, boring.  I'll be honest.  You just wait.

Bojan, getting ready for his concert.

Doesn't look nervous, does he?

Alex photo bombing a picture.  Got to love it.  Didn't really take any pictures of Bojan playing.  I didn't want to be rude and frankly, I wanted to really just listen to the music.  I used to be in band in high school as well as Warren.

Shoot, even during intermission Bojan & his buddies end up sitting with us.  Sometimes I think we're a kid magnet section.

Yana and Summer enjoying the show.

Nik, letting us know he's had enough of the show.  We were there for over 2 and a half hours total.  They did pretty well for sitting there that long.  Okay, so I did threaten taking away Summer's birthday cake the next day and Christmas presents one at a time.  

Bojan in the back during stage band.  He was in a lot of pain at this time.  We're going to figure out how to get to Shriners.  We're done with Duke at this point.  He can't live in pain the rest of his life at only 13yo.  Anyhow, back to the concert.  He did well and we enjoyed listening to the show.  The only complaint I have has nothing to do with Bojan.  I thought it was a Christmas concert.  So did many other parents and many were in festive red.  The music was more dismal and bleak feeling.  Guess it was supposed to symbolize winter?  Not sure.  I miss hearing kids today playing classic Christmas music such as jingle Bells or Rudolf, etc.  Now, stage band played more upbeat music but nothing Christmas like.  Think Thriller by Michael Jackson.  Yes, they did.  What counts though is we got to listen to a good show.  Thankful for that and proud of Bojan for taking band and practicing to get where he is.  He is in 7th grade band and Stage Band.  Those of you second guessing whether your child w/ limb differences should play, let them try it out.  We weren't sure w/ his fingers if he'd be able to play an instrument.  Bojan does just fine.  Well done Bojan!
