I’m not sure if this is another “aren’t my kids awesome” post or a “how on earth do I have a college senior” post.  It’s hard to imagine it was four years ago that we came here for the first time.

We spent Saturday in Ithaca with the self-proclaimed Only Real Marching Band In The Ivy League.  It was their final home game of the season and following the game was their Senior Concert were each senior got to conduct the band for a song.  It was such a joy to see so many “kids” having such a great time (and crying all over each other).

For all that Iona has achieved over the last four years, the band has been a central pillar of strength and source of great friends.  It’s another reason why my main parenting advice remains that all kids should learn instruments!
