FREEBIE from Rasberry Road and HILARIOUS band story

Can you tell that I'm going to see Mama Mia? I wonder where my title came from! LOL!
Credits HERE

These are the first four pages I have put together of a 4x6 brag book using the Tailwaters kit by Susan Darter available at Rasberry Road. There will be four more tomorrow.

Click here to download and if you download, please leave a comment! Thanks!

Then I was cruising DST yesterday and came upon this hilarious real life e-mail a woman over there got from the band director at school. I asked her if I could share it because the whole thing just tickled me silly:

Today I was checking my email. I'm a week behind but whatever, it's mostly junk anyway. So I'm checking when I see one from my son's school. Ok, I'm thinking what has he done now, i mean he's only been in school a few days. And he was out sick yesterday and today.

So I open it up to find this.

Immediately I got the giggles

Below is my response.

Mr. ____

I'm sorry _____ did not be stop by the band room yesterday as he was out ill. Here is a list of instruments _____ does play.

Piano- Never formally trained, but he can play chopsticks exceptionally well.

Drums and Guitar- He totally Rocks at Guitar Hero and Rock Band on both instruments. Oh, and he can play a mean Air Guitar as well.

He is also extremely talented as a singer. As his mother I will admit that I'm a tad biased so you can take all of this praise for what it's worth.



P.S. just for Kicks and Giggles I did ask him if he wanted to join band and he stated that he was not interested. With so much talent to offer I'm sure his presence will be sorely missed.

How come when I get a note home from school it is never funny?

here's the response.

Thanks: He, or someone has signed him up for band, but I really don't know what band instrument and section to include him in. Guitar and rock Band is fun, but we really don't use them in concert band. Thanks Al
