Happy Halloween 2014


Happy Halloween 2014
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for November 2, 2014


On Monday night, we went to the high school for a band concert.


Luke was performing for the first time without his brother in the band.  Avery dropped out because he had to choose between band and an engineering elective and he decided to do the latter instead.  So Luke is our lone representative in the music field for now.


As a percussionist, Luke plays a variety of instruments beginning with the bells.


All the way through these really big drums.  I always hope that he's going to start going crazy and just start banging on these things, but he never does it.  He just plays along pleasantly with the band.  Which is nice, but I just think it could be so much more if he just started doing some improv performances while he's up there and really start whaling on them big drums.


I suppose he doesn't want to annoy the rest of the band, though, so he just plays along with them.  I guess that can be a good thing as well.


On Friday night we went out for Halloween with our friends, Dan & Jen Walters.  I don't why they didn't dress up, but I guess they must just not be into holidays.


    Miss Sheri didn't want me to post this picture of her, but I told her this was my new favorite Tshirt of hers and I hope she starts wearing it a lot more often.


As usually happens when we go out with the Walters, the night got a little bit out of control.


But then Jen took charge and so we decided to go home and call it an early evening.
