Hannah plays the flute in her middle school band. This weekend 4 middle schools and 2 high schools got together for a battle of the bands. Hannah's group sounded great. One parent behind us said, "That band is cream of the crop."
One thing I love about the band, is that where ever you go, all band geeks (sorry hannah) tap their feet to the music! If you look close in that picture, you can see Hannah's little black ballet slipper in mid-tap.
The last minute scramble for a black skirt and clean white shirt brought back memories!
I went jogging today with Hannah's IPod. She's had her IPod for almost a year, and this is the first time I remembered to take it with me. Fun!
I've been suffering a little country music withdrawl, so I dialed up the Dixie Chicks on the playlist. I know we hate the Dixie Chicks and all that, but it was fun to be Ready to Run with Earl. I started listening to country when we lived in Texas - it was a requirement. But country music and Hawaii don't mix. The only country station here is on AM. I enjoy the island sound while driving around town, but the Dixie Chicks have a nice running beat.
I felt like that commercial - my legs were just running along like usual, but my shadow was dancing like the crazy dancer guy at my sister Sarah's wedding. I have a feeling I may have shouted HELLO a little too loud to the people that I passed on the sidewalk.
About halfway through my run I started to have ear-bud problems. It turns out that not only do I sweat so bad it looks like I'm wearing a bib by the time I get home, but my ears also sweat. Great. It was a bit annoying to have to continually push the earbuds back into by sweaty little ears. After a while I started to be able to hear my own heartbeat between songs. Is that normal?
Have a great day!
