This past week Izzy attended the Seminole County Summer band camp for the third time. Big change from when she had only been playing the flute for eight days. The camp was themed around Guardians of the Galaxy and they all had shirts made up that said Musicians of the Galaxy. I was blown away by their rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody and they also played a medley of songs from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Today Izzy turns 14 years old! I can’t believe it. She’s finished seventh grade and is moving up to eighth grade in the fall. This past weekend she wanted to have fish for dinner, unique in our family, so we all went to Bonefish Grill and had a nice dinner. Emily even had shrimp and I had crab cakes with my steak. Later that evening we celebrated with cake and took some Polaroids of the festivities.
In honor of Abby graduating this week, we invited her, her boyfriend, Caleb, and her sisters out to eat at Chuy’s.
For the second year, Izzy participated in the band Solo & Ensemble competition. She played her flute with a piano accompaniment in front of a judge this afternoon. The judge worked with her on her timing a bit, but said she had great tone and a lot of potential. Her final score was the top rating: Superior.
