So I just downloaded a Blogger app for my phone. Testing it out here.

Today my Wind Ensemble (top band) performed at the Georgia Music Educators Association District Two Large Group Performance Evaluation, aka district festival. We performed a very challenging program:
- Semper Fidelis - John Philip Sousa
- October - Eric Whitacre
- Procession of the Nobles from "Mlada" - Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, transcribed for band by Erik Leidzen

We did in fact earn a Superior at our festival in Hawkinsville, so on October 11 I started growing a beard. We were on fall break for two days, so I thought maybe by Wednesday it would at least be noticable. Nope. No one even noticed until it was almost a week old. After that first week I decided to go for the goatee instead:

Light the Night is a fundraiser for the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society. It's a special thing for us since Mom lost her battle with lymphoma two years ago. The band helped out by bringing in over $200 in donations as I walked with the Lee County High School team. Tammy walked as an independent.

Well, since we're about to leave Arkansas, I guess it's as good a time as any to show you what we've been up to:
Our digital camera died, so we reverted to -- oh my -- FILM!!! Whoever heard of such a thing??!?!? Dug up the old film camera, and we had four rolls of unused film sitting around. Well, now we have two rolls of unused film, plus a new digital camera. All these pictures are taken on good ol' 35mm.
Here's us visiting Leonard's BBQ in Memphis. We stopped there for lunch. If you watch Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives on Food Network, you may have seen this restaurant. Our review is not as glowing as Guy's. We thought it was pretty ordinary, actually. But oh well, it was still fun.
We were almost to Little Rock on our second day of driving, and it was time to feed Ryan. So we pulled off the interstate to a playground I knew of -- the playground at Oakbrook Elementary School, where Pete and I went to school when we lived in Arkansas in the mid 80's. Ryan and Jacob and I are standing next to the path that leads from the playground to the back yard of our old house. Can't believe the path is still there. Of course, once we arrived in Arkansas, we had to check out the TRAINS!!
The next day, we hit the pool. Jacob was not a fan -- which is funny, because he loved the pool last year. But Ryan liked the pool a lot!
Ryan has a favorite toy. It's an elephant. The ears make crinkly sounds when you play with them, and the feet rattle. He loves it.

What a crazy weekend! I turned 40 and Hank threw me a surprise party. We hung out in the backyard until we all almost passed out from the heat and then we took it inside for cake.

Jacob always loves a good chocolate cake :)
