As hard as I try to be a good mother, there are times when I am tired -- "pooped" (as Wanda would say). And I wanna stay home. maybe take a nap, read a book, or just curl up in front of a nice warm television. Fortunately, raising a brood of musicians and performers has it's perks. I am forced to leave the house and live a little.
The last month of any semester is what I like to call concert season. I've only got four children left in public school. Next year I'll only have three. Still, this concert season did not disappoint.
I truly love attending these activities. I am the kind of mom who tears up at performances -- tears of gratitude mostly. I am thankful for all the teachers and staff and public school volunteers who go the extra mile to give our students extraordinary experiences.
The Fossil Ridge Intermediate School put on a Fine Arts Night in which the orchestra, band and choir did a combined number!
and the Indian Parenting Action Committee hosted the Spring Powwow again this year and honored the graduating Seniors.
What can I say? It's a great year to be a Mom.
