Little Drummer Girl

Tonight was the night of the All District Band Concert in Neptune, NJ.  This means all the Elementary school bands, the Middle School band and the High School band all played together.  Last year Autumn didn't want to participate, didn't want to be with the boy drummers, and wanted me to be on stage.  This year was completely different.  She had NO anxiety about the concert!!!!  She was with all boy drummers and she didn't need me on stage!!!!  She has come a long way!!

Autumn and her BASE DRUM!
 Autumn has ALWAYS been loud.  From the time she was 3 years old she has talked REALLY REALLY loud which is funny to me because she is SO sensitive to sound.  She can't stand loud noises, often covers her ears however is LOUD herself. 

When it came time for her to enter the 4th grade she would need to choose an instrument to play when she joined band.  Of course she chose the DRUMS!!!!  I knew this would be her choice instrument.  Autumn LOVES the drums, always has.  The reason we sit in the front row of church is so she can watch the drummer.  When ever we go to a concert and can choose our seat it is front and center in front of the drummer.  When she listens to music she picks up the beat of the drums. 

My nephew Aedan is in Middle School and plays the clarinet.
