Senior Prom 2016

It rained on the Armed Forces Day parade.  

But after a wet morning, the Caterpillar suited up again . . .
for the Prom.
He was glad he didn't have to pin the corsage to S's dress.
We served them an elegant Chinese dinner,
with D2 as the waiter.
Then S and the Caterpillar were off to dance the night away,
leaving their waiter all tuckered out.

Musical Monday

The Caterpillar composed this "Mother's Lullaby" for me on Mother's Day.  Isn't it pretty?  Since we don't have any pictures of me asleep, I've included this one of the Caterpillar, when he was seven.  He's still sweet.

Happy Mothers' Day!

I'm sure grateful to be a mother to these talented young gentlemen.  And I'm grateful to my mother for showing me how!

Musical Monday

This tune has been on our minds for months now.  Good thing I love it!

At the 2016 Washington State Ensemble Festival, Scoot and friends played the beautiful Notturno from Alexander Borodin's String Quartet No. 2, arranged for five saxophones by W. Schmidt.  Why turn a quartet into a quintet?  I don't know, but it works. They scored well, and enjoyed their big day.
