The artist, or rather artists, of the week are Jacob's high school band, in particular the trumpet section.

Last Tuesday was the birthday of one of Jacob's band-mates. He is a fellow trumpet player and on a day he was out it was decided by the section that they would arrange for a surprise party. The asked the band director and she readily agreed. A request was made for cupcakes and I happily volunteered. The students planned the whole thing, the band director only got involved to help me coordinate the best time for the cupcake drop off.

The party was a big success. The birthday boy was completely surprised. He is not one of the popular crowd, just a socially awkward high school band kid who never would expect such a thing. Both the director and I thought it was a very sweet thing for the kids to do.

Before this I always thought band is a wonderful thing and now I definitely know it is. It like a big family and they all look out for each other.
