I can't believe my son Nick (no more Nicky) has started his high school life now. Band started practice for the summer yesterday. He's a freshman this year and will graduate in 2015. They had a half day of practice marching in spite of the high heats. Next week they start full 8 hour days. He said he had a lot of fun. I hope it continues to be fun. They got fitted for their uniforms and he looked just so grown. I don't know if I'm ready for this yet but ready or not here it comes!
