Private Parade

Children tend to march to the beat of their own drummer.  My kids… they march, and dance, and twirl to the beat of their very own drum-line!

The Kansas State Fair begins today, and this week our high school band shows their Tiny Town Stuff at Band Day.  Because of where we live (location, location, location!) we are the proud recipients of our very own parade every day for the first two weeks of school, as the band prepares for their performance.

She be Jammin'

Every day for the past two weeks, at approximately 12:52, I hear “Mom!  The band!  I hear the drums!  Let’s go!” and we head to the porch for forty minutes of simplicity.  Simply marching.  Simply dancing.  Simply smiling.  Simply waving.  Simply enjoying.

Ah, the Finer Things in Life, through the eyes of a child… your very own band.

Only in Tiny Town…
