Hurrah!

We are going to the school musical today. It is nice to see so many of the kids in town who have so much talent become involved in the music program at the school. They have plays and musicals and so many other events. Tonight it is a musical. I am sure there will be a large crowd there. They have a group of teachers that seem to get really involved in the program. Of course with all of the budget cuts in the schools people are worried that this will be a program that will be cut. I do not think it will because parents are very happy so see their kids get so involved in a school program.

Many of the kids will be playing with electric guitars. They have a group that takes lessons from Mr. Music. He seems to really know how to run a strict program and allow the kids to enjoy what they are doing while learning at the same time. This is very interesting to see how well the kids like him and respect him.

The girl down the street has a schecter damien and she will be playing her music with that. Her parents are very nice people and will be so proud of her tonight. I hope they have a good turnout. I am not sure if they will charge to get in or not. My guess would be yes. I imagine they need donations from the public to keep the program running. They accept many kids in that program. I know that the community enjoys seeing these kids play. I think one of the will be playing with an instrument that was handmade. His dad helped him make it in their wood shop. That shop sells so many interesting items. They even make handmade cabinets for the kitchen and the bath. The people in the house down the street hired the father and the son to make their cabinets. They are really very interesting and such a high quality. I wonder what it would cost to have that kind of a cabinet made. I have heard that they are very expensive.

I think that it is going to get very cold tonight. I better make sure that I have the down comforter on the bed. I love these cool chilly nights. Then I also enjoy waking up to the sun shining.  This time of year it is so nice to look out the window and see the leaves changing color. We have a lot of trees in our neighborhood so we are lucky to have such a huge selection of trees to look at in the morning. Of course we can look at them all day if we chose to but who has the time for that. I need to be writing blogs and not looking at trees. At night you can see the moon shining on the trees. You can see all the different colors of the leaves. The red and orange ones are really the prettiest ones to look at.
