As a 6th grader, Seth was the only student who has ever answered me with a "Yes ma'am." complete with a southern accent. Because of his dad's job, Seth has moved all around the United States, but the Southern accent has stuck a bit from Louisiana. Seth has grown out of the chubby cheeks that accompanied him into our band room, but thankfully, the polite manners and sweet heart have stuck right along with the accent.
We started our time together downtown at the break of dawn, seemingly, and it felt like we had downtown all to ourselves. Thankfully, we had this bridge just about all to ourselves too.
We traveled just a few blocks and found clean backdrops to begin to highlight Seth's numerous instrumental interests...
The challenge of my summer: use off-camera flash in different venues to understand geometry better. I'd say we hit the nail on the head!! We used Norwalk's Performing Arts Center stage to highlight how I know Seth best-as a trombone player and show choir vocalist:
Seth: You are such a gem! Your positive, helpful, downright JOYFUL attitude will take you anywhere you want to go in life and I'm so excited to see where the good Lord leads. Keep us posted and enjoy your senior year!!
