Today I am thankful for . . .
539. The gift of Nieces and Nephews. Tonight I got to see one of them graduate from high school. She looked so beautiful, and she is a beautiful person on the inside too.
540. The gift of Watching a Live Percussion Performance at our local Jazz Festival. Ty's drum instructor, plus two other percussionists performed an near-two hour show in the park by the river this afternoon. We brought our lunch, lay a blanket down on the grass and took it all in. It was quite amazing, actually. Drums only--all other instruments stripped away:)
541. The gift of Hearing From My Boys that the Percussion Syndicate (name of group mentioned above) Concert was the best field trip they've ever been on . . . even better than anything they did at their former schools. Yes, boys, that's exactly why I took you to the show--I knew you'd like it! And that's why homeschooling is so great for you--I can tailor everything about your education, even field trips, to your personal interests.
