Just a short update on our weekend. It was both good and bad. We had a good weekend as a band. We came away from the event with a Third Place trophy in our class. It’s not what we wanted, but it’s better than last year. We walked away empty handed then. The kids were a bit disappointed, but our band director is not just a band director, but he really cares for the kids and had some very encouraging words for them. They were words that helped the kids understand the value of being proud of the winners even if it wasn’t us. He told them to be proud for them. “You can’t win everything,” he told them.
The bad part of the weekend had to do with one of our kids (one of my son’s best friends) being sent home for drinking on the trip. Please pray for this kid and all of our kids. My son knew about him drinking along with most of the band. They just didn’t know how to handle it. His dad is coming to the school tomorrow to confront the teachers and probably some of the kids about it. I just pray that all can be OK with this young man. Please pray for him. I’m leaving his name out of this blog for now, but God knows so please pray.
