As fate would have it, Halloween got postponed for the first time ever in my recollection. It let us all be together for Halloween (except Christine who had to get to her party earlier than everyone else). Still, we had a great time getting together and getting ready for the night of trick-or-treating.

Jake and Beth got to perform for the first time as members of a band tonight. BMS had an exhibition concert of the 6th grade band. They were really great and it’s hard to believe that these kids have only been playing for a couple of months. I couldn’t believe how many songs they could do. It looked like everyone was having a good time, too. Way to go, Jake and Beth, I’m very proud of you two!
Today was the first BMS swim meet, and the first time Jake and Beth got to swim for BMS (but it was old hat for Lauren). It was pretty far away (Lebanon) but the weather was nice and the facilities had a nice big area for people when they weren’t swimming, so it was very comfortable. Here are some pictures:
It was very sweet of Diane to make “low-carb” brownies for me. They were wonderful and much better than I thought low-carb brownies could be. They made for a very nice party. Here are a few pictures that were taken, and I think they pretty much speak for themselves as answers to the “how come you’re never in any of the pictures on the website…
I can’t believe that cross country is already over for Beth. Well, she certainly went out with a bang today. The final meet was the WMAA “Medal Run” and it had girls from all eight schools running (probably about 250-300 girls from what I saw). It started out hilariously, because someone’s dog got loose right after the race started and it began to chase the whole pack of girls. Fortunately someone stopped it before it caught any of the girls.
Beth was beyond amazing. She came in second place overall. All of the top three girls were from Brentwood Middle School. Great job Beth! It was so much fun to watch you run. Here are some pictures of the race and of the medal ceremony:
Tonight Williamson County had its annual High School Marching Band Exhibition. Lauren got to go and participate in the final song, America: Sweet Land of Liberty, which was performed by the Williamson County Massed Band, which was basically all high school marching band members and all eighth grade band members. As far as I can tell, Lauren was one of only two kids (out of close to a thousand) who was playing the piccolo. Pretty cool, girl.
