We've spent most of the last nine summers.
involved in the pipe band community.
That's half of the time we have been parents as our oldest
is now 18 and heading to college.
That's him, third from left, playing snare for Oran Mor,
one of only a few Grade One bands from the United States.
My piper just turned 14 and has been playing for about 4 years.
He's the tall one in the back.
And our newest competitior, is the 10yo tenor drummer.
He's the one with the wild hair in the center.
And here is the youngest who is six.
He has time to decide which instrument he wants to play,
but for now he is a banner carrier.
