When I bought tickets for the band concert last night, I confess to having felt a sense of impending boredom. How could I have any fun watching a band play for 2 hours? I even told my kids that we could leave at half time if they weren’t enjoying themselves.
The purpose of this post is to tell you all that I was wrong. My kids and I had a MARVELLOUS time. The music was wonderful, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming, my students on stage were talented and hardworking and the ones in the audience were friendly and responsive. The NCC members did a superb job as well. I felt especially moved by the sincere smiles of the kids serving food in the hospitality room during the intermission.
I loved every part of that magical evening. Thank you all.
