KMS Band Concert

     Sunday 3pm found me heading to Kenai Central High School in blizzard conditions (this one actually concerned me a bit - rain and snow, totally on top of rain and snow - the kind that remains on the sides of the front window) with sirens blaring somewhere. 

     My 6th grade oldest granddaughter Dareena plays first trumpet in the beginners band and also plays in the advanced band. The combined concert with the high school was beautiful... well organized, great musicians, and carried on during the last 10 minute power outage. What a hoot and tribute to follow through to the end! 

     We were able to visit with Chris, Hugh, and Chris' granddaughter Jathia (whom the girls met for the first time) - thank you guys for making a special trip for part of the concert for the girls to get to know each other a bit. Glad your trip to Anchorage was safe. 

     Snow and rain had stopped falling when I left the school, but of course the road conditions remained tricky and the sirens were still blaring.

Your granddaughter is beautiful! I love that girls play trumpets now. When I was in school, it was only flute or clarinet for the ladies. How unfair!

I am sooo looking forward to attending holiday concerts one day for my grandchildren. Loved glimpsing at that, as it gives me something to look forward to.
