First Instrument Drive was a SUCCESS!!

YAY! We had such a great night tonight with all our incoming beginning band kids. We had 40 kids try out & choose instruments, and it was so great to see all their bright little smiles. It's so nice to be reminded of how music can change an "ordinary" kid to someone so extraordinary! We had several of them choose what I call "God's Instrument" (see below).

I also got a sweet little teacher appreciation present from a band parent today. I know we always complain about the parents who don't call enough, then we complain about the ones who won't stop calling... but it's just so nice to be appreciated for what I do everyday. Whoever said teachers aren't appreciated didn't work at MY school!! :)
We'll see how the rest of the week goes. More to come...

I'm so glad to hear your gushing about your job... God works in mysterious ways, no?

Yes, He DOES!! I don't think I could've asked for a better first year than this. I am amazed at how something so negative could turn into this! :)
