So last week saw something things come into our home. First, we had the pleasure of having Mr. Tom Rye and his wife of the Oklahoma Home School Band come to our home. They drove to Texas to visit our Victoria Home School Band director, meet our director in person and also bring our family and another family some instruments. Hands down, we definitely won the largest instrument contest because our oldest son acquired both an Upright bass and a full-size cello. These two instruments are almost so big, they take up almost all of the space in the back of our 12-passenger van.
Then our youngest son acquired a bass clarinet along with a full-size viola. The best part about getting the bass clarinet was the private instruction he received from Mr. Tom Rye in our home. It really made our son’s weekend. While deciding between the three violas we were offered, the decision ended up being fairly clear cut. Our son is really pleased with that instrument as well.
Here is a picture of our son with the winning cello.
And because it is Tuesday, here are some pictures of tasty things we have eaten recently. These include pork chops, a cake our oldest son made as a result of a challenge from work, and a meal my husband and I ate at Jason’s Deli.
