Wake Me When It's Over (125/365)

"Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind.”

Gioacchino Rossini (Italian, Composer of opera, sacred music and chamber music, his best known works include "The Barber of Seville" and "William Tell", 1792-1868)

TIME: 7:38 PM
PLACE: Junior High Gymnasium
SUBJECT: Mom's hands covering StellaDella's ear

DramaQueen plays the clarinet, and Monkeyboy plays the alto saxophone in their grade school band.  Tonight was the spring concert at the Junior High school.  My Dad even joined us for the big event.  StellaDella was less than impressed with the quality of the playing.  She told me that it was too noisy.  She did declare however that she was going to play the cymbals when she got in school - "Those banging things" as she called them.  She was very wiggly and restless throughout the evening's entertainment.  We had to visit the restroom twice.  About three-quarters through the concert, she laid her head on my lap and asked me to cover her ear so she didn't have to listen to the music.  As my hands and lap were full of SD tonight, I did not get to take many pictures.   Luckily, HandsomeHusband brought his camera and therefore, gets all the credit for this photograph.  He is my guest photographer today. Thank you so much for the picture honey, you really know how to help a girl out-love ya!

Jennifer - HH has the best eye...I wish I was half as good a photographer as he is!

Christina - Dispite a few random squeaks, the kids put on a wonderful concert.

Mari - When I found that quote, I immediately knew it went with the StellaDella photo.
