Final Band Concert of 6th Grade

So - many of you may (or may not) know that Delainey has been taking part in school band for a few years now.
She started in the beginning of 5th grade playing the flute. She really enjoyed it.... for a while.... then like most kids, the constant nagging from mom "go practice your flute" .... "did you practice your flute today" got a little old and here we are coming to the end of 6th grade (Yikes - but thats a whole different topic in itself) and she has made the decision that she doesn't want to play the flute anymore. We had a large band concert last week at what will be her future high school with the high school band members and then last night they had her Spring Concert at her school (West Wilson Middle School).
The band sounded very good for a "beginning" band.
They played some patriotic music and member of each branch of our service stood during their portion of the song.. The crowd applauded. That was awesome.
They closed the night with a montage of Beattles songs and sounded REALLY GREAT!

Good Job Delainey!
I'm proud of you.
Sorta wish you would continue, but understand you are coming into your own little "person" and just don't want to do that anymore.

Here are a couple of pictures. I'm still not very good at this new camera... plus - we were quite a ways away.
Delainey doing her "thing" - she really is very good!

Little brother listening oh so contently...

She found us in the crowd - please ignore the basketball net - i was zooming in and couldn't get it out of the picture!
