My Boy, the Conductor!

Ethan had his music program on Thursday night. Grammy and Grandpa left CO at 3 am in order to get there on time. We were sooooo excited. Ethan wore his "handsome" shirt and wanted spiky hair for the occasion.
Lucas was just excited to see Grammy and "Gompa!" He actually did pretty well during the performance, though did a bit of musical laps, switching every 3 or so minutes.
A few highlights - They started by stating their full names. Ethan said his name was Ethan Torrez. The teacher said, no, that was another girl's name. Ethan replied that it was both their names. She made him do it right. We all laughed.
Then came the Sousa March.
Ethan got to be conductor - leading all the kids with their instruments. Despite being a bit goofy, he did a great job. I LOVED IT.
At the end he said, "Thank you for coming to MY program."
They sang a bunch of songs and ended with a nice goodbye song. Then the whole group said, "Thank you for coming to our program. Bow and Up!" Oh I loved it so much!
Snacks and goofing around afterwards - too fun! So proud of my big boy! For those of you viewing this at the actual website, here's a video of the conducting...
