As the winter slowly marches along Billy has been busy! It took me a while to get pictures off Bill's phone... We had double booked weekends a few times and they did Dad/Son and I missed out... I often do the girl's things when there is a choice... but I wanted to keep up with his activities here too!
A few weekend back he and I went to the PTO's Mother/Son glow bowl. It was fun to just hang out and knock some pins. The other Mom/Son we were on the lane with didn't do a perfect job of score keeping... but despite their errors he won one, and I won one! We had a nice lunch of pizza and soda and he played a few arcade games. It is fun to get out one on one with the kids, and this event made it easy!
After messing up the fall concert, I was super excited for this winter one! It was a full evening affair (the one we missed was a quick show during the school day) and since my Dad had been here working that day, he went along as well. Billy played his pad and also had a chance to do the big bass drum too.
He played a duet with another drummer, and they were great! He doesn't practice very often (and I assume that as Savanna learned it will catch up with him once he joins the bigger district band) but they sounded great! The band as a whole actually sounded pretty good... not as squeaky and screechy as they could have been!
Bill ended up cold, but Billy spent the day moving around so much he was fine and had a great time! I love all the outdoors activity Cub Scouts offers.
Our pack had it's Blue and Gold banquet (which I also missed!) and Billy got a number of awards. He is well on his way to earning his Weblos!
So, while I may be slow to get his pictures posted... Billy is as busy as the rest of us!
