We had the BEST time on Friday night...we went to see Ty perform at the high school. The show choir is called "Encore" and he has been a part of it all year. (Jillian was in it her senior year too!) We keep commenting on how lucky he is to be involved...especially since the show "Glee" is one of the most popular t.v. shows!?
The entire concert was just the show choir doing number after number...most of which they had arranged and choreographed themselves. It was a blast. Ty MC'd, and had a solo in the song from Rent called "Seasons of Love". Suddenly as he was singing that song, it occurred to me that he is days away from graduating, and leaving me. He's been mine for roughly 9,460,800 minutes. We're entering a new season. Tears started streaming down my face, and it was all I could do to keep from inelegantly wailing in the middle of the auditorium. I've been so proud of him this year. He has done his best, gotten good grades, been reliable and responsible, been involved in so many good things. It's been a great year.
This last picture is 2009-10's Encore group...singing with 2010-11's Encore group. I know it's blurry, but yes, those are MY BOYS right next to each other in the middle singing their little Bass hearts out. Ry is the blurry dark curly one standing up, Ty is sitting down....
Ryan is going to have such a fun year next year!

I am an amazing picture-taker, especially since I couldn't use the flash. :) Yay for Encore! And yay for Tyler! :)

So awesome! I'm feeling the same way about Taylor right now. His last concert EVER at DHS is this Wed. and I'm kind of worried about how it's going to sound when I am wailing in the middle of the auditorium???

Such awesome boys you have!
