Tonite I attended the 6-12 choir concert to take photos for the paper. I'll be honest, there was a part of me that wished I could have just thrown my pjs on and snuggled with my kiddos on the couch. That being said, I was so glad that I was at the concert! We got a new choir teacher this year and it was his directing debut and I was very impressed with how all the different choirs sounded. Kudos to all involved!
You all know, because of my dad, affectionately known to many as "Hummin' Lar," I have a soft spot for music in my heart. Choir teacher for 20+ years. I was remembering tonite how on "concert day" he would go through about one container of tums or rolaids. He was always a nervous wreck.
The other day Jenna and Brody were trying to remember the words from a song from, "The Sound of Music." That is one of my favorite musicals of all time and if I can teach my kids anything, I hope it is my love of cheesey musicals. ;) I just can't help myself, I adore pretty much anything by Rogers and Hammerstein.
Music, it's good stuff. As I always say, my kids will be in choir, unless they're tone deaf. Ha! I will probably try to embarrass my children by singing random songs in public just like my dad always did to me. Good times ahead my friends...good times ahead!
