Oldest daughter has been in the junior high band for the past two years. She plays clarinet, like I did, like my mom did. She asked recently if I could teach her how to play the flute over the summer, but since I don’t know how she’s out of luck. She finds the flute appealing because the case is so much smaller than a clarinet case. Next year, oldest daughter will be in the high school band. It’s really strange to think that I have a child who is old enough to be marching at high school football games already.
