Ethan's beginning band put on a Christmas concert, and they actually sounded great! I think it's because she has the beginning band classes divided up by instruments. Ethan's class is ONLY saxophones and clarinets, so they get lots of time to perfect their own part before coming together as a big band.
Ethan also asked to join a youth basketball team, which surprised us. He's never been interested in it before. The other kids on his team have played for several years, so he's just learning the rules, but they are patient and nice enough that he's having fun learning the game.
Chris went camping with the scouts (all two of them that came, plus two other leaders), and it looks cold, but Ethan had fun.
