UIL

April 5, 2016

Krimmel Men's Intermediate Choir participated in UIL concert and sight reading.

I signed up to chaperone and got to ride on the stuffy hot school bus with the boys. Oh, joy!
No pictures or recordings were allowed inside the building. I was able to be there for the performances. I can tell you that these boys blew me away in the concert portion. In all 3 song they had full sound, a range of dynamics, crisp rhythms, and beautiful blending. By the time they got to their A Capella piece I had giant goose bumps down my arms and legs. It was lovely!!

Walking into the sight reading room, I had no idea what to expect from the boys. Was I ever in for a treat! They owned that piece on the first run through! Who knew they could sightread like that? Incredible! And to tell the truth, I got teary eyed while they sang.

While we were waiting for the judge's scores, we took a few group photos.
Once we loaded the bus to return to Krimmel, Mr. Green gave us some great news! The boys got a 1 in concert and a 1 in sight reading! Whoohoo!! They totally deserved the top score allowed!!
 They were very excited! It was a noisy bus ride back to Krimmel! Lol!


Clark Visits

April 1 - 3, 2016

Clark and Briana drove down to Spring to spend the weekend with me and Dane. We had lots of activities planned for some fun together.

Friday- My good friend, Emily, sent me an Edible Arrangement fruit bouquet. (Thank you, Emily!) It was so beautiful and smelled so great. We didn't have any trouble digging in! Yummy!
 Saturday- We went bowling! There was a ton of smack talkin' between us! Clark and I each came soooo close to getting a turkey but we both choked on the third strike. Darn it! Oh, well. We had a lot of fun just the same. And, we looked cute in our bowling shoes- NOT! Ha!
 After bowling we headed over to Allo's French Rotisserie Restaurant. We really enjoy this place. 
 And because we hadn't done enough already, we took the dogs to Meyer's Dog Park and also got in a 2 mile walk around Meyer's Park.

How many photos will it take to get 3 dogs and 3 people all looking int he same direction? Ha!
 Hey! Look over there! Ha! Ha!
It was so nice to spend time with my Eagle kids. We laughed and played. And I missed them the minute they drove away, on Sunday, down the street back to Denton.
