It wasn't at all what I expected!

December 13, 2007

Tonight was Nick’s first band concert.  He’s in a band of 83 fifth & sixth graders.  All but 2 or 3 have NEVER played an instrument before.  Tay said today she thought we’d hear “horrible” music.  I didn’t expect horrible.  I did expect squeaky, out of tune music.  Imagine my surprise when they sounded good! :)  REALLY good :)  REALLY, REALLY good! :) 

We were cracking up when right before the concert the school’s superintendant spoke and as he was finishing up Mr. Biddle reminded him that last spring he didn’t want to have Mr. Biddle teach the 5th & 6th grade.  Something about Mr. Biddle not being a good teacher for nearly 90 kids.  Well, Mr. Biddle showed him!  Way to go Mr. Biddle!  He & his assistant Mrs. Dyer have done an amazing job with this group.  I can’t wait to hear what they sound like in the spring!
