Yes. Live music is the best! Tommy is obsessed with music and he had a revelation this past Saturday. He was spending the night with his Grandma, and they were on their way to the mall to walk around and eat buttery-soft pretzels. But then they drove by the local high school football field where there was a band competition. OH MY GOD!!! He told Grandma he just had to go hear the music. So they turned around and parked about four, long blocks away so they could go listen to the bands play.
He was in LOVE! I am going to be chasing down high school bands to support this new-found obsession. And I can understand why he loves it so much; the sounds and vibrations must have been so intense. It just like when you go to a concert when you haven’t been to one in a while, and afterwards you can’t believe you don’t go to concerts every weekend!
So Tommy and my Mom spent a couple of hours on a 45 degree night listening to high school bands and enthusiastically cheering them on. I hear he was completely rapt. Luckily we live just around the corner from our local high school, so I think we will have to catch the next game and sit as close to the band as possible.
I am currently trying to get Tommy to understand that a band competition doesn’t happen every day. It’s all he can talk about. Hopefully he can contain himself until the weekend!
