We had the pleasure of taking our first field trip this week. We were entertained by the Johnson City Symphony during an educational symphony for students.
I was pleased that Lily remembered the instrument families and her favorite, "the conductor." Those living books are paying off!

And how do I end up with concerns about going to the symphony? Lily has been upset about the very scary "March to the Scaffold." She actually had problems sleeping last night! Note to conductor, it may not be a good idea to tell a room full of kids, many who were six, that Berlioz had a dream his head was cutoff and that we can hear his head rolling down the steps being played by one of the instruments. Especially MY very attentive and imaginative six year old!
