An Educational Symphony

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!

Either way, it was a memorable experience!


  1. Goodness! I cannot believe the conductor said that!! :( Yes, children hear what is said and it is not always a good thing. Other than that, it sounds like it was a lovely outing. Blessings to you! Camille

  2. Hi Michelle ~ I trust all is well with you and your precious family. :) How quickly the time flies by. I want you to know that I appreciate your visits with me at *my place*...I know you are super duper busy with your little people...and it is right and it is good!! Enjoy these days...they are treasures. I am stopping by for one last time before Christmas. Isn't that crazy? I am taking a blogging break until the end of December. May the Lord bless you and your family with His peace and presence and joy as you celebrate His first coming this Christmas. Many Blessings, Camille

  3. Happy New Year to you and your family Michelle. May God richly bless you all with His peace and presence now and always. Hugs to you! Camille
