Awwwww! Small children!

We went on a tour of some elementary schools with the Jazz Band today. Little kids are so cute! Best moments of the day:

Wayman calls a little girl up to stand next to Nick's bari sax and she is only a few inches taller.

Lillian plays Jaws to demonstrate the string bass, and Tyler (Yes, my brother!) screams. I have never heard him scream so high or loud. Tyler doesn't scream. He's more of a subtle threat person.

Wayman calling Kyden "our Guitar Hero." The kids loved it.

When we were on the fourth school, Ben got the bright idea to bring the stands in through the windows. It took us that long, and it was SO much easier than maneuvering with an instrument in one hand and 1-3 stands in the other.

All four times TJ brought the tuba out from backstage. I have never seen an audience so awed.

Good times, friends. Good times.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

So, this is for all ya'lls mothers, since I desperately hope none of you are mothers... except perhaps Shannah, Aly, and I because we had those fake babies for a weekend... It is perhaps the best, warmest day of the year so far! This is very encouraging...
