Tuck’s first sleep over was supposed to occur tonight after Jordan’s concert performance. Unfortunately, Cousin Wyatt was passed out in the back of Uncle John’s car before the sleep over could even begin. Naturally, Tuck was upset; he had waited patiently (if there is such a thing for a persistent 4-year old) all day in anticipation of the big night. That’s ok, we’ll have Wyatt over sometime this week during an off school night. Sleep tight Cousin Wyatt!
Jordan played in her first Lexington One Honor Band concert tonight at the Performing Arts Center. Both of Lexington High School’s band directors led the 75 fifth graders through 4 musical selections. What a spectacular performance by these first year band students. May I add, Jordan has only been in band 3 months!
Well, the good news just keeps rolling in; today Jordan received a very nice note from her principal, congratulating her on making the Beginner Honor Band. If you recall, Jordan just began playing the clarinet in January…mid-year. I am so proud of her…way to go Jordan!
Yesterday Tuck came home with a wonderful certificate of accomplishment; he has successfully learned the Pledge of Allegiance. I am proud that Tuck has learned the importance of learning the creed of our Country. Good job Little Man!
Dad got a call from Brian today to let him know that he made the headlines in the Arizona Daily Sun Newspaper. Sure enough, he is in today’s edition…front page. The story is about Flag Staff’s late season snow blizzard. Brian, the avid skier, was interviewed by the paper as part of the story. Brian is on the left; Sadie is on the far right.
This evening we went down to the Summer Lake to trying a little fishing. John and the boys caught several bass the other day so we thought we would try our fishing hand at it too. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the same success as the O’Cains. Althought we didn’t catch any fish, our time on the lake did give me an opportunity to teach Tuck how to hold a rod and reel. One day he and I are going to catch the big one!
Today our family celebrated Jesus’ resurrection at our new Church home at Lexington Baptist Church. Afterwards, Mom and Dad and John and the boys came over to our house for one of Janie’s famous Easter dinners. Lord, thank you for dying for us so that we can have eternal life with you in Heaven for ever and ever.
