Concert after concert after concert...

So I've gone to three concerts in the past three days. Well, one was a mini-musical, but I'm still counting it as a concert. Two of these I've had to perform in, which was epic. Let me share the story with you.
Tuesday: Orchestra Concert
So on Tuesday, it was the very last orchestra concert of the year. We played super epic songs (including Pirates of the Carribean) and had tons of fun. The seniors seemed to be upset by the fact that it was their very last orchestra concert ever, and some even began to cry. A few speeches were given on how awesome orchestra is, how amazing Mr. F is, and even how orchestra has changed people's lives. It was on the verge of crying and I'm sure Helen was as well. It seems like it wouldn't be a big deal, but when you think about it, you'll never be on that stage as part of high school orchestra ever again. It's really kind of upsetting to see the seniors leave, but I know they've got bright futures ahead of them and will always be remembered by us :)
Wednesday: Wind Ensemble Concert
Wednesday was interesting, but it wasn't as emotional as the orchestra concert. It was still rather sucessful, though. Our director really seemed on the edge of tears at one point, but she did well presenting awards and such. I don't think any speeches were given, but it was still pretty awesome. Baby elephant walk was probably the best part :D This is significantly shorter than the last paragraph, but I think you get the gist of it.
Thursday: How does your garden grow?
Probably the best performance was the Elms first grade class performing "How does your garden grow?" It's a little itty bitty musical about a garden infested by weeds and what the flowers do. They sing four or five songs and do cute little motions, so it was really adorable :) My brother was one of the many gardeners, named Herb. He had one line and I was really proud of him for not messing up. However, I don't think I knew any of the words to the songs, because he didn't move his mouth except for saying his one line. He did a few of the motions, though. It was really adorable. I am proud of my little brother who did a fabulous job as Herb :)
Well, that's it. Bye bye :)
