Jason is in Band this year. And while he's really excited about it, we're NOT excited about the $1000 price tag for the Oboe that he wants to play! So it looks like our task this weekend will be to find a cheaper version so that he can still play it. Ryan wants him to switch to Chorus, because it won't cost us any money, but he was in Chorus last year and HATED it, and I don't want to do that to him. So I guess if I have to scour the city looking for a cheaper Oboe, then that's what I'll have to do. Of course, the fact that I don't speak the language might make it even more difficult, but oh well. The things we do for our kids!
