My oldest son had his Spring percussion concert Thursday night. I love going to these concerts. He does a great job.
When he was going into seventh grade and told me that he wanted to take percussion I was surprised. You see Jona has mild Autism and with that comes a dislike of loud noises. He had a hard time going to see movies because of the noise level.
I talked with him about that. And asked him if he was sure he wanted to take it because it would most likely get very loud in that class. He assured me that he wanted to take it. We signed him up and he's loved it.
I've loved it because he has good friends in there. His teacher has been awesome and it's built up his self esteem. Anyway, here is a video from last nights concert. He's the one in the yellow tie right up front and center. Enjoy.
