the last competition

Day 7

I'm thankful to have been present to see my nephews last band competition of his highschool years. Today was the last time he'll play in competition since he's a senior.
Big E and I headed to Graham, NC.

With tearful and proud eyes, I watched.

I listened.... and I cheered. Loudly and obnoxiously. On purpose.

And then his solo made me get all tearful again.
I am so thankful I went to see this today.
For a moment, when the sun was it's brightest, and warmest shining down
it almost felt like my brother was there to watch his son...
