April 10: Stjernedryss

Stjernedryss, “Stardust” concert for Steindal Skolekorps tonight. All 3 bands played–junior, aspirant, and main band, and each kid got a star for their uniform for their year of performance, followed by a large table of baked goods, coffee, and saft.

I try to fit in and go with the flow, but everyone knows that we are the Americans because all of the families here have been together for so many years. It’s a tight community. I’m delighted that a few people smile and talk to us to make us feel welcome, and they always think that we should stick around longer! Anders has made a good impression.

Next up for the korps: marching and 17. mai, Norwegian Constitution Day! Can’t wait to see the hats that go with the uniforms.
