I passed my audition!

At band this morning we had our auditions to move up from training band into the concert band next year. I had to play 'Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree' and 2 other songs that I learned last week. I also had to play a piece of music I hadn't seen before, and I only got 2.5 out of 10 ... but I only really started trying to read from music properly last week, so Mum was really pleased. Best was getting 9/10 for my scales.

I will have a purple concert band t-shirt for performances, and Mum is looking for a trombone of my very own. It's really exciting, and tonight we had a special dinner to celebrate :D

I love Bugs!

Today I was picking some flowers for Mum, and I found this big praying mantis in the lavender garden. He was really interesting watch for a while, and Mum let me use her camera with the macro lens on to take some photos. I really like this one.
