I sent an invitation to everyone so you have access to a folder on Google Drive to share pictures. If you didn't get that invitation
, please contact us for the link. Only those who have been given access will be able to use this link.
I already put all of my pictures in. There really aren't very many! I hope you all have amazing ones to add as well! (This one is from Mrs Fielding.)
And here, in the order written, is the series of Limericks we composed on the way home. (Realize, folks, that the last 3 verses were written in the last 3 miles, and no one is allowed to be offended!)
The musicians of NUYSThey really think they are the bestIf they watch Mr DunnPerforming's more funWhere they're going next you'll never guessThe viola's the very best sectionThey don't really remember the questionTwo measures agoThey lost all controlTheir bows are in different directionsPercussion likes banging the gongThey never can see the batonDon't ask them to playThey've been counting all dayAnd they don't know what measure they're onOur conductor is really so oldHis truck always breaks on the roadHe's often* so lateBut we still think he's greatHe's shrinking but still leads our foldThe firstsare cocky and smartThey think they own every partThey steal melodiesSo make them stop pleaseBalance is truly an art(Keep it down up there!)The seconds are rather neglectedFor solos they're never selectedThey try really hardSo bless their dear heartsA species that should be protectedThey cellos are seldom* in tuneO please take them out of the roomWe want some reliefFrom all of this griefA sectional's needed soonThe brass is always too loudThey really are all rather proudThey play with pizzazzAnd they can play jazzWe need them to please the crowdFor woodwinds we write a haikuWe've run out of time - what to doThe basses are greatThey determine our fateAnd we really like touring with you!
*I've replaced always and never with often and seldom. Just to be less snarky!
The chorus to the Limerick song is:
Aye, aye, aye, aye
In China they never grow chili
So sing me another verse
That's worse than the first verse
Make sure that it's foolish and silly!
Have a great summer!
