Luke is going to be in the honor band next year. He is so excited. He had to turn in his beginner tuba and got the full size tuba. It is so much bigger than the other tuba and has four valves. I asked him, "Luke do you know what those valves are for?" He said, "Sure mom," and he just started playing. Then he started laughing and had the biggest smile on his face. I askedd, "Why are you laughing?" "It tickles," he said. Now whenever I listen to him, I start to smile because I keep thinking about it tickling his nose.
He is going to audition for the band director at TCU to see if he will take him on as a student. I'll let you know how it turns out!
