At the beginning of this school year, Blake decided he wanted to try out for band. He was accepted in Beginner Band playing saxophone. Within just a few months, he was moved to Advanced Band. The school has nearly 80 students in band and only 15 are in the advanced category. Wednesday evening they had their Spring Concert. Blake was recognized as the only student to advance from beginner to advanced in one school year. Also, Blake's friend and our Spanish minister's son, Zack, received an award for Most Improved Beginner Band. Now, Blake has asked me to teach him piano. I pulled out some of my beginner music from by-gone years when I taught, and within 30 minutes Blake was playing a "two-hand" piece. Next week, he will sing "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You" for the school talent show. Maybe Blake is going to be the artist in the family that can sing and play it all. This boy never ceases to amaze me.
