Play it again, Jake

Last year, when Jake expressed interest in beginning band, I was thrilled. I wasn't crazy about his choice of instrument...the trombone, but, finally, there was an activity that I could relate to. I had such fond memories of my time in band, and wanted to give Jake the opportunity to experience them too.
This fall, when school started, Jake was able to be talked into playing trumpet instead of the trombone. He has enjoyed the twice-weekly lessons at school. I am hoping this may be a long term activity for him.
Tonight was Jake's first band concert. Here are a few pics of the proud musician....

And what is wrong with the trombone? I knew many trombone players and very few of them ended up in jail.

Congratulations, you must be very proud of him and rightfully so.
Nice photos, of course he is so cute. If he continues to follow in his mother's foot steps, he'll be a great success.

Susan's Husband....nothing wrong with the trombone, only that it is as big as he is and he has to carry it back and forth to school, LOL! In high school, I went "steady" with a trombone player for 2 years....nothing wrong with the trombone at all ;)
