Cait at BOA Super Regional, San Antonio TX 2006
Barb at Grits and Glamour has begun this great new event - What's On Your Wall Wednesday! I agree with Barb, the first thing I look at in a person's home is their artwork and photographs. You can tell so much about a person by their choice of art and the photographs they display. Of course, the first thing my DH checks is the framing (he's a picture framer by trade). He even checks out the frames on the art in restaurants, offices, any place we go! The idea here is to post a picture of what you have hanging on your walls at home and tell a story about it. Stop by Barb's blog at http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/ to see a list of all the participants in this inaugural event! And if you haven't visited Barb before, you are in for a real treat!
This is my favorite photographic montage of our daughter Caitlin. She was center Drum Major her Senior year in High School. This was also the first year Georgetown High School participated in a Bands of America marching competition. Coincidence? (joking) These photos were taken at the BOA Super Regional Competition held in the Alamo dome in San Antonio, Texas. You can't imagine the feeling seeing her walk out onto the field in such a prestigious event! I just love the look of fierce concentration on her face. Click on the photo to enlarge and look at the individual shots - if that 3rd one isn't a "mom" look, I don't know what is! They did such a wonderful job, and all of the parents were beside themselves with pride. I don't think that people understand the extent of the work and commitment that these kids have, and to have it celebrated in such a setting is just amazing for them. To all of you out there with young children, if they come home and want to join band, RUN, don't walk to the nearest music store and rent them an instrument. Getting your child involved in the arts is one of the greatest gifts you can give them. Oh dear I feel a whole 'nother post coming on lol. That will be a subject for another day! Don't forget to stop by Barb's and visit all the participants. I think this will be a really fun way to get to know each other!
