It ain’t bragging if he can do it.

We’re up at North Carolina State University for two days of freshman orientation for the Omawari-son.

In first day orientation news, he auditioned for the marching band and got a first trombone part.

He can’t be stopped.

I’ll be back to writing and reading activities later this week.

    Congrats to the Omawari-son. It must be a great honour to be in a marching band. I heard a small sample of that kind of music some years ago and it is quite exciting to my ears.

    As this is not part of Brit culture, is it something that’s only relevant to schools and colleges, or can big adults do it as well?

      It is generally a school related activity. I think it ends up feeding a lot of the non-professional community orchestras, etc.

      It is a big thing in high school and college. There are large competitions for high school bands.

      He sprung quite a surprise on us by auditioning and getting a challenging part in his first year!

So, what's on your mind?
