Congratulations Samantha

Last night was Samantha's last band concert of the year which was very enjoyable. It is fun to hear the kids getting better. Best of all however was that Samantha recieved 2 certificates of achievement! The 40 kids in her band class all voted for 3 categories, Most Improved, Most Inspirational, and Most Valuable Player. 4 were chosen for most improved, Samantha was chosen as one of 3 who were "Most Inspirational" and Samantha and her friend Kaylee were voted "Most Valuable Player"!!! Her band teacher mentioned that this was the first time 2 7th graders were chosen as most valuable player, as the band consists of 6-8th graders. We are very proud of her, especially since this accolade comes from her peers! Way to go Samantha!

Here she is in her Batman costume for a bit they did of superhero tunes

I knew it. I knew Samantha had outstanding talent. I know it doesn't come as a surprise to anyone else who has heard her play. Can't wait to see what Elise choses to play.

Very cool! I love the costumes. So much more fun then the old black skirt or slacks and a white button up shirt we used to wear.
