Robbie is still doing percussion in the school band, and is sounding great. After sitting through the 5th and 6th grade orchestra and band Christmas concert, I am thrilled with his choice of instrument. While the strings and horns are fabulous in the right hands, they require years of painful practicing to perfect. Robbie is also sounding so great on the piano these days, his teacher raves about him, and we love to listen to him practice. He's currently playing songs from Pirates of the Caribbean and some Jazz that is amazing.
And I know I'm biased, but he's a good-looking kid too.
Side note: Rob left work at lunchtime to make it to the 1:30 concert, only to be stuck on the freeway for nearly two hours because of an accident. He made it to the school just after the concert ended. "A" for effort.
