Tom at his last jazz performance in HS. He also won the Louis Armstrong Award. It was the only award he wanted for 3+ years, worked hard, & won.
We were so excited. Super proud of our boy. He has finished his 1st year of college toward his Bachelor of Music, jazz studies/performance. Now a sophomore & getting better all of the time. Sorry to brag, but we're so proud of his hard work & dedication. It was not easy, but one year down!! #louisarmstrongaward#oehsclassof2018#jazztrumpet#supportlocalmusic#proudparents#niuclassof2022#awesomeson

The night of Tom's last Jazz Ensemble concert. We were surprised because his beard was gone! Summer must be coming!
He's done really well at school this year. He worked on his school work almost 24/7, but he made it! He is now a Sophomore Jazz Studies music student at NIU! Can you tell we're proud?😁😀 Now comes a summer of classes, lessons, practicing, & napping here & there.😉 I know, it never ends...😎💜🎺🎶

Hee hee. Weather is getting nicer. I'm thinking one of those screen doggy doors would be great for Jade. Why do they expect a reward just because they came in? I don't get a treat every time I come & go!!😉🙄

Have to show you these! I wear Vans a lot. I have big feet w/a few different pain & circulation issues. So, I get Vans b/c they look good, lots of variety & they're fun to wear! One thing people can do, & probably don't realize, is you can design your own shoes!
So I decided to make my own Superhero Shoes! Based the colors & design off of one of my favorite heroines. Couldn't find any cool WW shoes in my size, so I made them myself!😉👍 Sometimes you just have to do things yourself! Love my Vans!! #vans#vansfamily #customvans#lovemyvans#funvansshoes#wonderwomanvans#vansforever #collectvans#designyourownshoes
Beard is gone! Awesome concert by the NIU Jazz Ensemble tonight. Tom did great. All of the players were on top of their game. A lot of energy & passion coming from them! Rodrigo Villanueva is their director.
Tom is finishing his 1st year toward his Bachelor of Music (B.M.) is jazz studies & performance. It's the only thing he's ever wanted to do. So proud of this kid!
Hey! They have a gig on June 9 in Chicago! Stay tuned for details!

Here's what I woke up to today! Lots of snow on everything & still coming down for several more hours after this! ❄❄❄ It's April, right?📅
It looked pretty, but B was flying out of town for work at 1:30. He was delayed several hours. I can only imagine how tired he is right now! 🛫🎰The dogs aren't thrilled about it either.🐶 Oh the joys of Illinois!🙄😉☃️ In 2 days, it'll be 70 degrees & I'll be wearing shorts again.😊 (The pics are our backyard & school behind us. You can see some things were blown over in the wind.) #snowinapril#illinoisspring#onemoresnowfall#midwestweather#justsmile#dogsdontlikesnow
