When Does He Sleep?

Here's what Eric has been doing almost every day since August 30:

Band camp lasted for ten hours each day for a week.  After school started they cut back to three hours a day.

Among their many competitions this year, the band will be capping their season with a national championship contest in Indianapolis in November!   Eric loves the band experience, but with Seminary at 6:00 every morning, school by 7:00, practices, football games, competitions, trombone lessons, Scouts, and lots of homework, we don't see him very much.  I'm so proud of him, but I can't wait until November 15th when it's all over...unless the football team makes the play-offs.  Oh boy!

What a busy busy life...for everyone! Eric has got some serious ambition so I am sure he finds ways to make it work - can he get away with sleeping thru seminary? ;)

He's tried, believe me. It doesn't work very well when your mom's the teacher!

That's an impressive schedule. I need a nap just from reading this busy post :)
Seriously, what a lot of great activities. Their band uniforms are really sharp looking too. Our school never had anything that fancy!!
