Austin's Last Band Shindig

Thursday, May 14, 2009 was the last band concert and the next night was the band awards night where the seniors get to give their last will and leave something to those left behind.

Austin had bought Riley a superhero - 'Morman' t-shirt that became Riley's superhero nickname amongst his friends. He 'willed' it to Austin at the end of his senior year. Austin in turn 'willed' it to a friend of his, Brennan Egbert, that is another 'Morman' himself. The tradition lives on.

For his really good friends he bought 'Navy Seal' knives - real ones off ebay! One of his friends collects knives. I was a little apprehensive so I emailed parents and got their permission. I wanted them to sign off and know what their kids had in their possession. We DID NOT hand these out at school!

His other friend who doesn't like knives but loves the Boston Red Sox received a NY Yankees hat and a lighter. Got to love Austin's originality and creativity!
