I am sad to see summer ending but excited for the coming fall. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. There are Friday night football games, fall play, and the best holiday of all -Halloween! This year the piccolo section plans on being angels and demons for our march in the Halloween parade. I am certainly planning on being a demon! My main Halloween costume will probably be a zombie although I may have a few other ideas.
The band did a good job during halftime at the game Friday night. Our team lost but nevertheless I had fun hanging out with my friends. The following day the band did an amazing performance at a band festival. To add to my busy weekend schedule Sunday was spent working on various home projects such as crafting some ocean-themed hooks for my sister and I to hang in our room. They have a rustic beach cottage appearance and cause me to miss the great times spent at the Outer Banks in the summer.
On Sunday I also spent the evening with the horses. I rode Adam first and then Madam after him. Adam gave me trouble as usual. Mainly it was his bolting, rearing, and bucking which was a problem. I have a theory that my riding crop may be part of the issue. I believe it is ineffective and should be replaced with a stronger one. There is no school on Friday so I plan on going to Equine Chic and spending my gift card on a new one. I hope it works! Another item in need of replacement is my pretty purple riding helmet, unfortunately. During the last ride with Adam it was damaged after I was thrown in the pasture. Perhaps I will find a nice replacement at Equine Chic.
I wish everyone a happy late summer/early fall. I can’t wait for the Halloween decorations to appear and for the festivities to start!
