One of John's secret talents is that he plays the trombone and he's pretty good at it. He started learning it in fifth or sixth grade, and he's continued to do it through middle school and high school. I want both of my children to be able to play an instrument because I think it has a lot of benefits, so I'm happy that he's stuck with it. He'll continue to play for the school band through his last two years of high school, and who knows, maybe into college.
I've really missed going to his band concerts during Covid since they haven't been happening. But finally, he had an outdoor concert in May on the high school football field. Hooray!
