I got the opportunity to attend Wade's first orchestra concert recently. I remember going to Morgan's when she was the same age as Wade... and with the violin Wade is using now too. Morgan's classmates and she named her violin PUMPKIN, because of its color. Well, Pumpkin is still holding up. It was a special concert because his orchestra teacher wasn't able to attend because she was in the hospital for her cancer, and her dad stepped in as her replacement. She called the kids to wish them luck before the concert while she was in the ER. That's dedication. Wade did a great job. I'm so proud of him!
Of course, afterwards, we had to go get ice cream... even if it was cold out.
