We have been following the band's activities on FB. The band
director has posted pics as well as those parents fortunate
enough to fly out to Washington, DC.
DS and his best friend were given the honor of placing the
wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The military
escort walked in next to him. We saw two pics and it was
mentioned that someone had a video of it. I will keep
checking so DH and I can watch it.
The band played at the Lincoln Memorial. Lots of people
were walking by, some listened and others kept on
walking. But they were asked for an encore so they
repeated one particular selection.
Then it was off to eat and then walk through the Mall
in the evening hours. I texted DS and he was very tired
but we exchanged about 10 messages before wishing
each other good night.
As for my day, aside from checking FB, was spent baking
bread, working in the garden, some fencing projects that
needed to be done at the farm, and at last, coming home
to grill steaks and potatoes, feasting on fresh spinach
and then, sitting by the fire pit, being joined by the next
door neighbor, DD and the GC. A very peaceful ending
to an exceptional day.
I wish I could post pics from today but maybe I will be
lucky enough to figure it out, if it can be done.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday. HUGS!
