Meanwhile, T-Rex had a chorus presentation of the Nutcracker Suite. In the first part of the play she was a soldier, and then she and her friend switched the lead role halfway through the play and she did a tremendous job. T-Rex tends to be an introvert, so I was quite surprised that she tried out for this part. Sorry for the blurry pics.
A few weeks ago Big Al tried out for District Honor Band, and was CERTAIN that she bombed. She was wrong. Apparently she was one of just a few 7th graders who made it. So Friday she was shuttled over to a high school, spent a day and a half with new music, and Saturday afternoon gave a concert. She got to do a steel pan drum piece that she really enjoyed. She's thinking about trying out for the school's steel pan club next year.
