Today our family went to the Apache Junction Veterans Day parade. Our son Jacob marched in the marching band for his middle school. They looked so good and sounded really good. He is the one with the blue trumpet. He told me he was not going to wave to me when he marched by. He couldn't help it we were all calling his name and he gave us a little smile and wave. I can't believe I am old enough to have a middle school aged child. I was so proud of him when he marched by I had to stop myself from crying the happy cry.
