The boys got back late last night from their jazz band trip to California. Joseph center in his zoot suit
And Ethan doing a solo. LBB stands for "Little Big Band"
Hyrum on the front left there -
The few weeks leading up to the trip, Hyrum was a little sad that we were "making" him go. I think he was mostly nervous because he wasn't prepared... he didn't practice much while we were in Brazil. But I think/hope he's had a good experience and will put forth a little more effort (with a little less nagging on our part) to practice and go again next year. So, they were excited to tell us all about the trip and their roommates ~
(Joe's new nickname is "Rico")
They spent a day at Disneyland, where Hyrum lost Corey's cell phone...snaps" (which they promptly scolded me for googling... "You can't look it up! I had to figure it out!!!") It was cute hearing them talk. Got less cute after midnight, when we tried to make them go to bed.
The kids had a lot of fun.music program, it's a great experience for them on many levels.
