Happy Thanskgiving!

With this early end to the school week, only one question remains....

Did YOU take your instrument home to practice over the long weekend??

(And no, this was not a setup - thanks to Anthony, Molly, Becky, and Aric for actually all leaving at the same time with instruments in hand!)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!
