It's been a busy few days. Jake's band, I, Riot, performed on Thursday night, Friday night, and Sunday night. And in the same order, they had a bad night, a good night, and a fun night.
Don and I have always supported our kids, in whatever they were involved in at the time, by attending their events. Whether it was soccer games, band concerts, dance recitals, or classroom field trips, we were there. I never dreamed that my future would hold days where we'd be following my son's band from one venue to the next.
And support doesn't just mean sitting in the audience and listening. We've transported drums and fans, loaded and unloaded equipment, helped with the sound system, provided food, played amateur photographer, and the list goes on. But I wouldn't change a thing.
I'm experiencing a part of life that most people don't. We get to be involved in kid's lives in a very gratifying way. I know more about the independent music scene than I could have ever imagined. And most importantly, Jake [hopefully] knows how much his mom and dad care about him and will always support him in anything he chooses to do.
