Need a Flute

Anybody have any suggestions on where to get a good flute (for a senior first chair) that won't cost an arm and a leg but will only be used about six months? My senior daughter's flute is done. No matter how many times we take it to the band shop, it never comes out working right. I think too many years of rain soaked games (in marching band) has totaled it.  With concert band starting in a few weeks, my daughter is going to need a new flute if she wants that first chair and the solo again.

I dread the purchase though. It's for only six months use! That's a lot of money for six months. I guess we have another daughter who plays flute and could use it but her current flute already works just fine!

I'll look on ebay but you  never know what you're going to get there (and their fees are OUTRAGEOUS anymore). I'll check out Musician's Friend too. We've bought a lot of stuff from them over the years and I trust their merchandise. I just hate to buy a brand new flute for only six months use. If you're interested in Musician's Friend, check them out.  Learn more about us at

Maybe we'll just rent one for the six months and be done with it. We don't need another flute in the house once my senior daughter graduates. My middle daughter has her flute, my son plays drums, and our youngest daughter has decided to start drums next year. No more flutes necessary. Ugh.

Adult Dancing

I hear the buzz about Dancing with the Stars on the internet but I've not actually watched it in several years (kinda hard to do without television). I love dancing. My childhood dream wasn't to be a princess. It was to be a solid gold dancer (yeah, I just dated myself).

My kids have been in dance before. I think most parents put their kids in dance lessons at one point or another. I've seen adult dance lessons offered too. Yeah, I've thought about dance lessons from the dance doctor but I feel like I need a little Shaun T to get in shape and lose weight first.  I guess I feel like I need to look good first (but wouldn't dancing accomplish that too?). Since I pulled my shoulder last winter and it keeps tearing any time I put weight on it, exercise has been out...but dancing, perhaps, is in?


Homecoming Queen Nomination

My eldest daughter was nominated for homecoming queen for her senior class along with her boyfriend. She really wanted this (her friends were always attendants in previous years and it was kinda like "always a bridesmaid never a bride" feeling with her friends around her getting it) and now she has a shot at homecoming queen.  She's excited about it and I'm excited for her if it is what she wants.

The start of her senior year is off to an exciting start!

Son beats out senior on snare

Marching band season has started and my sophomore son is lead snare. Yeah for him!! I don't think the senior in percussion liked that too much but he is better than every other one in his group. The senior quit band because he wasn't snare or on the quads.

I think it'd be cool if our marching band had some guitars out there, set up wireless, of course. I've heard they're going to get some keyboards or something but I'd like to see a guitar. Then we can really do "Welcome to the Jungle" the right way. There are a lot of cool wireless systems to choose from but our school would never spend the money on that kind of set up.
