because next week we have fall break and no school.
great. not sure what we are doing to fill that time, but sleeping in sounds good to me.
anyways, back to today.
programs. plural. two schools. same time.
no van. Cory had it.
which is fine, the schools are close to our house, and to each other.
Maggie had the brilliant idea of riding bikes.
but I couldn't find a lock.
so we walked.
I decided to try to hit Jack's first. his band was playing O Canada.
I thought it started at 10:30, but that was Sadie's.
his was at 10:45.
incidentally, the sound of bagpipes, and that trumpet song they always play on remembrance day always brings a tear to my eyes.
I love that the kids still get a tiny bit of time every year to think about and learn about times past, and people who fought and died for our freedom.
Jack's school had a bag piper playing in the hallway, and when she walked past the classrooms, the kids were supposed to follow to the gym. love it!
so, listened to the band, the trumpet song, then headed back to Sadie's school,
and totally missed her choir. and they even sang two songs.
it was too bad.
I wonder if I had gone to Sadie's first, would I have missed Jack's song?
but I tried.
maybe I will have better luck next year. and no kids to bring along, and maybe a van!
