School playoffs

Yesterday was KOHS's football team's second round in the playoffs -- and they lost. So that's it for the marching band trips for this year.

Onward to concert types of performances.

Day after Thanksgiving

Hmph! I'm upset with myself that I didn't get any photos yesterday. My camera was all charged and ready to go, but it was forgotten. Oh, well, maybe I'll get some of the leftover-fest!

Austen and the KO band and football team are off to Huntsville for the second round of high school football playoffs. It's cold out and Anne tells me that Austen is sick again. How miserable for him.

Another newbie

And then this morning, I also received word that my niece has had her baby, a little boy, Jayden Matthew. He was due on Nov 30th, but was born on Nov 18th. Good thing! He's 7 pounds, 4 ounces and 22 inches long! Going to be tall like his 6'5" daddy, no doubt.

Newbie in the family

Here's a cute baby added to our family: The Spandaus now have a cavapoo puppy, named Ollie. Just precious!!

First playoff game today

Here are some photos from today's first playoff game - Klein Oak HS vs College Park HS (from The Woodlands):

Moorhead Stadium in Conroe

KOHS Band's brass section

The drumline is below. The clarinets and flutes were sitting in front of the drums and weren't visible from where we sat.

About to begin the second half

The scoreboard during 4th quarter.

Here are links to a couple of videos:
One of the excellent drum cadences that were played at many points throughout the game.
They're playing "Low Rider" in the half-time show, but since they're facing the home team's bleachers, not us, the sound is muffled.

Turkey Trot (school fundraiser)

Here are several pictures of Kira and other second graders before, during, and after their Turkey Trot last Friday. (Click any photo to "biggify.")

Ready, set, go!

Here's Kira's class poster -- see her name toward the right?

Kira made it four times around the course, and when she finished she was really red-faced and hot ... but still smiling!

How the Linehan kids prepare for Halloween

Our delicate ballerina -- playing the video game guitar...
Parker's dressed in his Red Sox uniform, but Austen hasn't made a move to get his costume together yet! They're busy!!

And finally, two photos of Austen in his (you supply the name) get-up. We still haven't the foggiest what character he was dressed as ... or thought he was!
