...the last Band Banquet...ever...

...so...we attended Scout's final Band Banquet...
...it was at a lovely farm venue...
...our table was decorated with a photo of the seniors...they didn't actually sit with us...they had a long table up front for all the seniors...
...the cake and cupcakes...fire themed because of their show...
...the seniors very own cake was a fire hydrant...so cute...
...this is my plate...a yummy (rather large salad)...and the caterers assured me that the corn and potatoes and green beans only had olive oil and pepper for seasonings...it was so nice...
...a few highlights from the slide show...it was fun to see all the photos and reminisce about Scout's final year in band...sorry for the angle...I keep my camera low and just snap what I can get...I'm not one to 'watch' the show through my camera...
...Scout getting his pink senior band chords...he'll wear them with his honors chords at graduation...I did not know that pink was the colour for band chords...I didn't even know that anyone other than academic honors wore chords...so...of course I googled it...here...
...all the loot...each senior got a booklet of photos...and a 'senior' photo...and a frame...like the one on our table...a few tiger paw white chocolate lollies...the baggie has his band school letter pins...but the letter is missing...the director explained that they didn't have them in time for the banquet but they would get those in a few days...just a little late...

...another bittersweet 'last' from Scout's senior year...

~Wishing you a lovely weekend...

  1. What a lovely celebration and a poignant one too given it is Scout's last year with the school band. I really like the venue and the goodies. The cake was awesome.

  3. My son is a sophomore, but I'm sure those two years will fly by (just like all of the ones before them) and I'll be where you are before I know it. Seeing them grow up and hit those big milestones... it makes you so proud, and breaks your heart all in the same breath.
