Last week was such a crazy week that I don't know where to start. Let's go to the good things first.
We spent last week-end with our daughter and granddaughter in Nashville. Granddaughter had a chorus audition late Friday afternoon and then their band played at the ballgame at David Lipscomb University. Because the audition was in one part of town and DLU is in another, we opted to stay at the house. We're not big on Nashville traffic. We did, however, decide to go to the band competition in Waverly, TN on Saturday afternoon. I think there were 14 bands in competition ranging from around 20 members to over 100. For their experience and size, they were all good. Savannah's band had about 41 or so members, so it was one of the smaller bands in Class 2.
All of the band representatives went on field at the end to receive their trophies. Savannah attends Goodpasture Christian School. The representatives went out in flip flops, sunglasses and of course their uniforms. The home band started \presenting the trophies and I started counting how many each band had. My last counting was 7 for Goodpasture and 2 for the largest band. I've been around the block a time or two with band competition when my kids were in band and I knew the one with the most trophies won. When they announced the Sweepstakes, it was Goodpasture Christian School. What a thrill and honor to be in the stands when they made that announcement. Congratulations to all Goodpasture band members. The trophy is six feet tall.
Sunday morning we found out Savannah will be in Mid-State Women's Chorus. She won the audition and we are trilled again. Congratulations girl, you deserve it!
