the little drummer girl

That was a great weekend.
It was Founder's Days. 
The first weekend when we moved here 2 years ago, was Founder's Days.
That means we've been here for 2 years. It's our 3rd summer here. 
Much has changed since this first  Founder's Days post I wrote back then.
And last year's Founder's Days.

This year, we participated in some of the events in a different way.
Neve became a member of the fife and drum band. 
She has been practicing every week during the drills on the waterfront. 

 I'm not sure if she's lagging behind or leading the pack!

Here, she and her friend are being presented as new members of the band to the commander.
She's also very excited that someone will be lending her a red coat!
 I'll make her a shirt and then we'll work on pants.

This year, I was a judge for the Shelburne County Idol. It was a fun 2 nights of tweens singing.
Henry and the kids camped out in tents overnight at the waterfront with a gang of friends. 
It was so nice to sit by the fire, chat, watch the amazing fireworks and Boat Parade of Lights.
Rafael scootered, swam and sailed all weekend. Oh, and he performed in his first theatrical piece, 
the Maltese Falcon. 2 weeks of drama camp culminated in a cute little play.
We had a very tired crowd here tonight. 
But a very contented, sun kissed, great memories made kinda tired.

Love this town.
