My son's senior year is winding down quickly. I can't believe how time flies. He has always been very involved in music and I am going to miss seeing him in all his concerts and performances with school. It seems like just yesterday he was a first grader playing the piano in his elementary school talent show and now he is graduating. Over the weekend he was in his high school's Battle of the Bands contest. He and a couple of buddies threw a band together in a few weeks and were surprised when they actually won the competition! The first photo is them singing "That Thing You Do" from the movie, and in the second photo they are performing a more serious song. No heavy metal here...The third and fourth photos are his last performance with his high school jazz band. They just returned from a trip to Nashville where they took first place in a big contest. They sound wonderful. I will sure miss all of this, just like "sports Mommies" must miss seeing their kids play on the "home team" after they grow up. I guess it is time for the next stage in our lives, not better or worse, just different! Have a great week, and if you have little ones at home--give them a hug and enjoy their "littleness", before you know it, they will be all grown up!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
