Yesterday, my darling daughter and I attended the Spring Concert & Awards event in Prosper High School where my sister-in-law is working. She is a music teacher and a band director of the Reynolds Middle School Symphonic I band. The event showcased the concert of the school bands Symphony I and II, Wind Symphony, and the awarding of outstanding students who excelled in individual or group performances.
I like going to events like concerts. Of course, I only go to the ones that interest me. Symphonic band concert is one of them. My darling daughter enjoyed watching and listening to the music. When she saw her aunt on the stage conducting her band, she’s very happy.
When we were getting ready to go to the concert, my little girl joined me in my bathroom. As I was putting my makeup on, I didn’t notice she grabbed my red makeup bag and took the mascara from it’s box. She called to me and said “Mommy, look at me.” Surprised and amused, I quickly grabbed my digital camera and took her picture. The look on her face is priceless.
It was a very successful concert. My sister-in-law’s family was there including her mom, brother and his wife. I was told that this is my sister-in-law’s last concert with her band because she will be retiring end of this year.
My darling daughter and I enjoyed the concert, too. She was well-behaved and listened to the music as the band played their musical instruments together. She was talking about oboe and piccolo…that sort of stuff. I am hoping that she will have the interest in playing a musical instrument when she gets older.
