Trumpet!

 I don't post here often, but promise to start. ;)

My little guy (9) came home with his trumpet today.  He's been so funny "practicing" and wanting to learn how to clean it, etc, ever since he got home from school.  Luckily, he did take a break to do his reading homework.

I hope he always loves playing it!  And, I hope I don't go deaf.  lol

Any other band moms around?

 That is so sweet.  My son is in 4th grade and he plays the clarinet.  Our dog hates it when he plays, but he has gotten very good at it and is so proud of himself.

 Hahaha!  My dogs just ran away when he started blowing in the mouthpiece.  I don't think they're going to be very happy with him. 

My son is also in 4th grade.  I was surprised when he told me he'd joined band, but since I never had the opportunity to do so myself, I'm thrilled that my kids are excited about it (my daughter plays, and I use that term loosely, guitar and violin.  She's definitely a beginner on both though).

My boys tried flute and clarinet . . . but neither of them stayed with it.  Now they play guitar and piano.

Yep....we have two band kids so far....one trumpet and one percussion (they are now 7th grade and learning to march!).  Our fifth grader is interested...depending on the day and our third grader will have to wait til fifth grade to start, but he wants to do percussion.
