Saturday, Bill and I got the opportunity to go to the OU game with some friends from church. Unfortunately OU lost, but we had a good time. This drummer is Tanner Brown. His parents are in our bible class. This is the band marching into the stadium. Here’s the band marching on the field for the pre-game show. This is part of the pre-game festivities.
No I don’t have a 6th grader, but the Edmond Memorial Men’s choir performed for the 6th graders. They do it every year. They sang an African folk song about taking a village to raise a child. Of course it was very good and had some fun lyrics to it. There is always a guest director for the 6th grade. This year it was the vocal music director from my school, Midwest City HS.
One thing a Boy Scout isn’t lacking is patches. So when Will finished his Eagle, I took the time sew all his patches in a blanket for him. I got Justin’s blanket caught up also. This past June, while I was working as a summer school secretary, I met a lady who wanted me to sew together all the doll blankets her daughter had received and make one big quilt. It went pretty quick and it’s exactly what the woman wanted for her daughter.
