Matt had his first concert as part of the percussion section of the Norse Band here at Benicia Middle School. He practices all instruments in the percussion section including the snare drum, the bass drum, and the mallets. But for the concert, he was on the xylophone.
Usually, you can't hear an individual instrument in the band, but with the xylophone, you can clearly hear him!
Matt is having a ton of fun. Nice job Matt!

Matt played in his second season of soccer this fall and had a very nice year.
He practiced all year long and developed quite a few moves. I was impressed that he used most of those moves to pass very well. This one didn't end up in a goal, but he gave up his own shot to put the ball in the perfect place so someone else could score.
Matt got the "hockey" assist for this one. He got the pass before the pass that led to the goal. It was a fun to play with his buddy Joseph who got the goal and Richie who was a very good player.
I wish I got some more of his fancy footwork on film, but he's developed a lot of good moves.
Matt ended up scoring almost 10 goals during the season and guess who never got one on film! I know, I'm a bad dad or at least a bad camera man. While I missed the actual shot, at least I got proof that Matt's shot went into the goal. Does that count for something?
