Skowt came home yesterday with the news that when she is freshman next year the high school band is planning a trip to Florida.
Ahhh! I'm not ready for this!
She didn't have many details yet, but had a packet to start raising money for their trip account. This frustrated hubby and I a bit. You expect them to start fundraising for a trip we know nothing about yet? I emailed her band teacher today and she assured me that the HS teacher was working on a letter to be sent to parents by the end of the week.
It scares me to death to send her on a trip like that! And not just because she is diabetic and who is gonna take responsibility for making sure she gets her meds and eats regularly? I've been on a trip like that when I was in High School. I know what the older kids were up to. In fact quite a few kids got sent home for their behavior. My mom has said that she was scared to death to send me.
But it's part of being in band, how can we not let her go? This will be her only opportunity as her school only goes every 4 years. Mine went every two. I wasn't able to go my sophomore year because I had to go on a family trip. Fun.
It was during Christmas break and I got back before the band did. I had to sort music during my band hour because there was no class.
Maybe I'll just have to torture her and go as a chaperon!
