This year my oldest started intermediate school and by doing so, it was the first year she could pick an instrument to play in the school band or orchestra. Now, Yasmeen is not a classical kind of gal, so I didn't expect her to pick violin or clarinet, but TROMBONE??? Now that was a surprise. So she shows up at the first band practice and picks up her instrument, and guess what...it's almost as tall as she is. Turns out that another friend also chose trombone and there are now 2 girls in the 5th grade walking around with huge trombones on practice day! Yasmeen really likes it and practices often...however; sometimes (and just sometimes, Yasmeen...if you happen to be reading this), it sounds like a poor beluga whale sending out a distress call. She has improved immensely since the beginning of the year and will be attending band camp this summer, so she is very excited. As for us, we are excited that she's found an instrument she loves and hope she gets better at it every day. After all, did you know there is some college $$ out there for FEMALE TROMBONISTS???? Woohoo...you go girl!
